Notability criteriaEdit

Women's tennis players are considered notable if they have played one main draw match (in singles or doubles) on the WTA Tour, played one match in Billie Jean King Cup, or have won an upper-level ITF event ($50,000 or higher). Players can also meet the general notability criteria regardless of their results. For more information, see WP:NTENNIS.

Based on that criteria, most players ranked around 250 and above are probably notable (but not necessarily). Lower-ranked players may also be notable if they have participated in Fed Cup (likely due to being from a country not well-known for tennis). Junior players may also be notable if they have won a junior Grand Slam event or are ranked in the top three in the world.
