What do you pick? My brain automatically goes to ice, it would be cool to see the players slide around, but obviously that is not realistic. I would take out Rebound Ace and make the Australian Open, and the preceeding events all regular hard courts, probably the exact same surface as say Miami.

While I truly believe that Rebound Ace was created by and should be destroyed, I like the idea of having all four majors played on different surfaces. How about making all the courts at Melbourne Park indoors and laying down a Greenset or Taraflex carpet?

They should change it to Miami style slow harcourts like you say. I was thinking the exact same thing.

I'd like to add the surface of ICE. Because Canada is good at ICE Sports and it apparently isn't helping when the surfaces are Grass, Hardcourt, Clay etc.

If you did that, then you'd have to (a) keep the Aussie Open roof closed to reduce the blinding glare from the sun and (b) play with enlarged racquetballs or miniature basketballs, so the balls won't skid when they bounce off the hardwood.

If I were the voyeuristic type, I'd go for clear Plexiglas, so you can get camera angles from underneath the court. Fortunately, I'm not the voyeuristic type.

I think they should play on snow (or ice as said above).

I have played on wood (or a wood-like surface) because my university converts several basketball courts into tennis courts in the winter. That is, the lines for both games are painted on, and they just put nets up. It IS very fast, however it does work as a surface. I've played a lot of fun matches on it.

They should have inflatable tennis courts...you'd get to bounce on your serve!
