WTA 1000 Tournaments

WTA 1000 tournaments is a category of tennis tournaments in the Women's Tennis Association tour. The old Premier Mandatory and Premier 5 tournaments merged into a single highest tier and it is implemented since the reorganization of the schedule in 2021.[1][2]

As of 2021, WTA 1000 tournaments include events with prize money of approximately $1,000,000.

The ranking points awarded to the winners of these tournaments are 1,000 (mandatory: Indian Wells, Miami, Madrid and Beijing) or 900 (non-mandatory: Dubai/Doha, Rome, Canada, Cincinnati and Wuhan).

This compares to 2,000 points for winning a Grand Slam tournament ("major"), up to 1,500 points for winning the WTA Finals, 470 points for winning a WTA 500 tournament, and 280 for winning a WTA 250 tournament.
