An awful lot of tournaments list 'hardcourt' on their websites, which can be anything from wood over cement to Rebound Ace. The WTA often is less than specific too.

Yeah, like both the US Open and Aussie Open are, by definition, hardcourt, but they are 2 very different surfaces. Even clay comes in several varieties....red clay is popular in Europe and green clay more so over here.

Especially since the ball bounces so high on Rebound Ace, the flat hitters get a good swing at it like it's red clay. And if it's REALLY hot, the stuff gets 'sticky', and slows the ball up even more. It some ways, it's more like red clay than green clay is. Green clay can get slick.
