About the WTA International Tournament

The WTA International Tournament is an annual series of professional women’s tennis tournaments. From 2009 to 2020, the event was known as the WTA International tournaments. 

The WTA 1000 (“Masters”) is one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments, with tennis players receiving 1,000 points towards their rankings for winning. There are several mandatory tournaments in this category: Indian Wells, Miami Open, Madrid Open.
