General Performance Index©
(GPI: General Performance Index): "It is an index that measures the performance that a tennis player has had in a given period of time." This index, not shown here, is used to make the "General Performance Ranking© or GPI Ranking© ".

The following tournaments, which corre-spond to those started in the month of February, have been included for the determination of the Top 30 of the General Performance Ranking©: All tournaments were played on hard surface, except for some Fed Cup matches that were played on clay.

•    Fed Cup – Qualifiers (Clay and hard).
•    St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy – Premier 5 (Hard).
•    GSB Thailand Open – International (Hard).
•    Dubai Duty Free Tennis Champion-ships – Premier (Hard).
•    Qatar Total Open – Premier 5 (Hard).
•    Abierto Mexicano TELCEL – Interna-tional (Hard).

The WTA Ranking of the players, which has been considered for this report, is on March 2nd, 2020.

Regard the 178 players, who participated in these six tournaments and who compound the statistic sample that has been consid-ered for the statistical calculations, only the 30 that have achieved the best perfor-mance in the mentioned tournaments are exposed (table 1).

We highlight, the podium conformed by Elena Rybakina (KAZ), Aryna Sabalenka (BLR) and Kiki Bertens (NED) in positions 1, 2 and 3 of the GPI Ranking©, respectively.

Other players highlighted in the TOP 10 of the GPI Ranking© are: Magda Linette (POL), Maria Sakkari (GRE), Anett Kontaveit (EST), Belinda Bencic (SUI), Garbiñe Muguruza (ESP), Heather Watson (GBR) and Leylah Fernandez (CAN). See table 1.

Similar to the comments made for men, in the table 1 in February there are only 4 Top 10 of the WTA Ranking, while in the table 1 in January there are 8 Top 10 of the mentioned ranking. It would give the impression that, most of the Top players, they pause after the Australian Open and prepare for Indian Wells, it sounds logical and it is a presumption (see table 1 in January and February). This does not mean that the Top 10, Top 20 do not play but that they play fewer tournaments or they are less exposed for the issue of injuries and they taking care of their physique to play the most important tournaments, such as Indian Wells and the Miami Open. Although this is an anomalous year on the subject for all known and I do not wish to name it expressly.
