I understand that M stands for the whole amount of participants (it is like "S" for Singles).
Q stands for qualifiers.
D for doubles tournaments.
X stands for mixed tournaments.
What do "32,16,16" (in the Shenzhen tournament) mean?
I have been told that for example in the Shenzhen tournament the qualification board can have 16 female players and only 4 may qualify. It means that each player must win two matches to enter in the competition. But, how do you know that only 4 can qualify? It is not written in the 2018 WTA calendar.
Moreover, how come in the Australian Open the 2018 prize money is not showed?
