Heading into 2019, there will be numerous changes in the professional tennis tours (ATP/WTA) with respect to Challenger and Futures tournaments. There will also be changes to the point structure of ITF Junior tournaments. In addition to this the ITF is launching a new “Transition Tour” in 2019.

Tennis Canada has developed a new “Conversion Chart” to align Rogers Rankings with all these changes at the international level. An extensive research analysis has been conducted during the last 2 months to develop this conversion chart. This included correlating player results from the different ranking systems (ATP/WTA/ITF) with the player results in the Canadian Ranking system.

The two primary changes are as follows:

1. Conversion of ATP/WTA/ITF (Junior)/ITF (Transition Tour) to Rogers Rankings – There have been a host of changes in the PRO tour (ATP/WTA) with respect to Challenger and Futures tournaments. There have also been changes to the point structure of the ITF Junior tournaments. In addition to this, the ITF is launching a new “Transition Tour” in 2019. Tennis Canada has developed a new “Conversion Chart” to align Rogers Rankings with all these changes at the international level.

Ranking Equivalency – Starting in 2019 Rogers Ranking will follow the following conversion chart to award points to our Canadian players competing on the PRO(ATP/WTA) and ITF (Junior/Transition) circuits.
