The USTA has announced that USTA ranking points will be awarded for the ITF Senior World Championships played in Miami and for the ITF Super Senior World Championships played at the USTA National Campus in Lake Nona, Florida. Points will be awarded for men’s and women’s singles and doubles. Mixed doubles points are not awarded because there are no USTA rankings for mixed doubles.
The points awarded will be equivalent to USTA Category I ranking points (10x, with 1000 points going to the event winner). Gold balls will NOT be awarded for these events and they do not count as a Category I tournament for meeting the minimum play requirement for qualifying for a USA international team (though the results may be considered when selecting the 2018 teams).
Only USTA members who are USA citizens or residents will receive ranking points.
The ITF awards international ranking points for the world championships separately. The awarding of USTA ranking points is separate and does not affect the awarding of ITF ranking points.
