Why do women get different medals? WGM or simply GM?

    Did I get it wrong or are you saying there tend to be more good female tennis players? I believe the top 100 tennis players are all men.

    The gulf in ability, between the sexes, is far greater in tennis, than in chess.

    Speaking of titles, we have WGM,GM,IM,NM,FM. Here are a few more titles to join the alphabet soup of titles...

    In the USA

    SM = State Master

    CM = County Master

    PM = Parish Master (for those Cajuns)

    TM = Township Master

    In Canada,

    PM = Provincial Master

    MM = Municipality Master

    CM = County Master (in Ontario)

    In Brazil,

    RM = Region Master

    SM = State Master

    MM = Muncipio Master

    fM = Flavela Master

    etc etc etc, you see where I am going with this. Each country would have their own internal ladder system. As you get better or your opponents getting worse, your rating would progress to the next level. Once they reach NM which is national master, all would funnel in to the worldwide FIDE rating system.

    Regional Master?? Damn! If SA had titles like that I would be a RM (: Got Regional clothes but no title

    That's my point.

    Yeah, I'm not really sure what point trevbot was making - not, I presume, that there is a higher proportion of women who are above the median female ability in tennis, still less that the best tennis players are women. Perhaps he means a higher proportion of the female population can actually play tennis to acceptable standard (because women are more prone than men to take up the sport in the first place), and he is very possibly right for all I know differently, but I don't see where this is taking the argument. (As in "logically reasoned discussion seeking to establish a conclusion", not "shouting match")

    "In Brazil,

    There is no such thing.
