I think all the Aussie tournies are Rebound Ace (or some variety of it like Synpave?). I also think the Middle Eastern tournaments are also on Rebound Ace (which explains Hingis/Seles/Mauresmo's success there).

I think the rest of the outdoor hardcourts are more like the DecoTurfII kind.

If you really want to check out the surfaces, look at the tournament draw sheets and look in the box (or wherever) where they mention the surface.

IIRC (don't have the info handy), the Gold Coast tourney is the only Oz tuneup that isn't played on Rebound Ace.

I know the diff between rebound ace and decoturfII
