Rebound ace - like a hardcourt?

I had always just imagined that rebound ace was pretty much a hardcourt, just a little bit sticky. But after watching a few matches yesterday, with some good camera angles and hearing some bounces pretty well, it seems more like an indoor court type surface. Is that true??

Itīs hardcourt, but it is a slower than the American hardcourts. Itīs kinda between clay and hardcourts in the speed of the surface department.

Always bet on black!

Inspiration is for amateurs

How does Rebound Ace "prohibit free flow movement"? All players run by lifting one foot up after the other. Nothing is preventing them from doing this on Rebound Ace except their poor footwork.
