Default Why is it MTF and WTAWorld?

Why has the forum name for women's tennis adopted the official tour acronym, while the equivalent men's forum has adopted a far more literal name?

If these respective names were consistant with each other, the forums should either be ATPWorld and WTAWorld, or Mens Tennis Forums and Womens Tennis Forums.

Haha I was wondering myself! MTF is also such a long name compared to WTAworld.

Finally someone asks

I thought it was something along the lines of that it was too similar to the official atp web address. Although scandal would be far more intriguing

I think, but I might be wrong that they had the atp name in their old forum and the atp threatened with legal action.

That is why when I posted about the ATP fantasy game it was deleted, basically out of spite for the atp.
