International Series and International Series Gold?

What is the difference between International Series tournaments and International Series Gold tournaments?

How many rankings points do each of them offer for the winner?

So in tournament important *excluding the TMC* is it just:

1. Grand Slams

2. Masters Series

3. International Series Gold

4. International Series

Thankyou.

Yes, the difference is the prize money and points awarded. There's a basic explanation on that page at Steve G's site. Let me see if I can find the page in the ATP rule book that explains it a little bit better.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: International Series and International Series Gold?

I guess prize money is not so important. For example Stockholm and Moscow have higher prize money and still considered international series, while Tokyo and Vienna are among gold ones:

Tokyo International Series Gold $765,000

Vienna International Series Gold $690,000

Stockholm International Series $800,000

Moscow International Series $1,000,000
