Notes

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