After the withdrawal of Esther Vergeer, the women's entries for the 2012 NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters and the 2012 Invacare Doubles Masters have been updated.

The withdrawal of 14-time champion Vergeer means that that a new name will be added to the women's singles roll of honour for the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters, although Dutch players still dominate the entries, with Sabine Ellerbrock of Germany still the highest ranked non-Duch player.

Vergeer's withdrawal from the Invacare Doubles Masters means that London 2012 Paralympic silver medallists Jiske Griffioen and Aniek van Koot of the Netherlands will start as favourites for the women's doubles. Meanwhile, Marjolein Buis, Vergeer's gold medal-winning partner in London, will now partner Great Britain's Louise Hunt at the Invacare Doubles Masters. Hunt will be making her Invacare Doubles Masters debut.

The updated women's entries for the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters and Invacare Doubles Masters are as follows.
