You can get the latest live WTA rankings below along with the top movers and losers in the charts. Here’re the latest ranks on the women’s singles circuit with weekly updates on the top 30 in the ATP rankings.

The WTA ranking system has often left many fans scratching their heads. It is hardly the most straightforward system around, but it is an effective one. Each week after the list of tournaments conclude, fans look at the rankings to see where their favourite players sit on the table.

Let’s take a look at how the ranking works and how the ranking currently looks.

The rankings of the players is established based on their performances over the past 52 weeks of tennis. The players earn points based on how well they perform in the tournaments they participate in.

The Grand Slams; Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open, are the toughest tournaments in the sport as you may know. They also offer the most points to the players. Following is the breakdown of the points in these majors.

Winner: 2000 points
Runner-up: 1200
Semifinalist: 720
Quarterfinalist: 360
Round of 16: 180
Round of 32: 90
Round of 64: 45
Round of 128: 10

Some points are also allocated for the qualifying rounds.

While the slams offer the most points, they are also the most limited events on tour with just four every year. Players have the opportunity to earn points by playing in various different tournaments throughout the year in a bid to gain more points.
