Rankings Question

A footnote on the Roland Garros website stated that almost 300,000 tennis players are ranked in France! :eek:
I had no idea players were ranked to that extent!
So how many total ranked players are there in the entire world?! :eek:

How does this ranking process take place (including for club players)?

It's different in every country. I guess they have 300.000 registered tennis players (that's what I think is written there) but probably most of them didn't play any events except for small regional tournaments.
