Notes

  • 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. The Dubai Championships were classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by the Qatar Open for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, the Dubai Championships regained its Premier 5 status while the Qatar Open was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
  • 2 In 2014, the Pan Pacific Open was downgraded to a Premier event and replaced by the Wuhan Open.
  • 3 2011: WTA Ranking–1209, Tournaments–0, Win–Loss 0–0.
    2012: WTA Ranking–N/A, Tournaments–1, Win–Loss 0–1.
    2013: WTA Ranking–440, Tournaments–1, Win–Loss 0–1.
