14 - 27 January 2019 - will it be super sunny in Australia's Grand Slam tournament?

For the 2008 event, a new court surface was laid down, changing from the Synpave Rebound Ace, a hardcourt surface composed of polyurethane and synthetic rubber that has been used for the previous few years, to courts made from plexicushion.

The court colour has also changed from green to blue. The new courts are believed to be faster than previous, but they would still be slower than the court surfaces used at Wimbledon and the US Open. The new surface would also be more durable under heat stress.
