Points system[edit]

The tournaments listed above were divided into twelve point categories. The highest points were allocated to the Grand Slam tournaments; French Open, the Wimbledon Championships, the US Open and the Australian Open. Points were allocated based on these categories and the finishing position of a player in a tournament. The points table is based on a 32 player draw. No points were awarded to first-round losers and advancements by default were equal to winning a round.[1] The points allocation, with doubles points listed in brackets, is as follows:

Grand Slam $300,000+ $275,000+ $250,000+ $225,000+ $200,000+ $175,000+ $150,000+ $125,000+ $100,000+ $75,000+ $50,000+
