The WTA Tour is the elite tour for professional women's tennis organised by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). The 1988 WTA Tour included the four Grand Slam tournaments, the WTA Tour Championships and the WTA Category 1-5 events. ITF tournaments are not part of the WTA Tour, although they award points for the WTA World Ranking.
The table below shows the 1988 WTA Tour schedule.
Titles won by player
These tables present the number of singles (S), doubles (D), and mixed doubles (X) titles won by each player and each nation during the season, within all the tournament categories of the 1988 WTA Tour: the Grand Slam tournaments, the Year-end championships and regular WTA tour events. The players/nations are sorted by:
1) total number of titles (a doubles title won by two players representing the same nation counts as only one win for the nation);
2) highest amount of highest category tournaments (for example, having a single Grand Slam gives preference over any kind of combination without a Grand Slam title);
3) a singles > doubles > mixed doubles hierarchy;
4) alphabetical order (by family names for players).
Below are the 1988 WTA year-end rankings (December 19, 1988) in both singles and doubles competition:
