Serena Williams won the first three grand slam tournaments of the year and was on course for the slam until she lost in the semifinals of the US Open to Roberta Vinci; Flavia Pennetta went on to win her maiden Grand Slam singles title at the US Open. Pennetta would retire from tennis at the WTA Finals in Singapore.

Statistical information[edit]

These tables present the number of singles (S), doubles (D), and mixed doubles (X) titles won by each player and each nation during the season, within all the tournament categories of the 2015 WTA Tour: the Grand Slam tournaments, the year-end championships (the WTA Tour Championships and the Tournament of Champions), the WTA Premier tournaments (Premier Mandatory, Premier 5, and regular Premier), and the WTA International tournaments.[4] The players/nations are sorted by: 1) total number of titles (a doubles title won by two players representing the same nation counts as only one win for the nation); 2) cumulated importance of those titles (one Grand Slam win equalling two Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 wins, one year-end championships win equalling one-and-a-half Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 win, one Premier Mandatory/Premier 5 win equalling two Premier wins, one Premier win equalling two International wins); 3) a singles > doubles > mixed doubles hierarchy; 4) alphabetical order (by family names for players).

Points distribution[edit]

The points distribution was mostly the same for the 2015 season.[12] Main draw rounds usually give a little less points, but there is no change for the champion (W). Points for qualifying rounds (Q) have changed in both directions depending on the tournament category. Points earned in 2014 retain their value until they expire after 52 weeks. What changed are the distribution of points for the WTA Finals and WTA Elite Trophy.
