Notes

  • 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Total Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009-2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012-2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
  • 2 In 2014, the Toray Pan Pacific Open was downgraded to a Premier event and replaced by the Wuhan Open.
