The WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai is the only WTA tournament that has a covered court surface. So matches are played indoors, regardless of the weather conditions outside. The court surface is hard, but it has a special cushioning system that reduces the impact on the players’ joints and muscles. The system was also used at the Australian Open between 1998 and 2007. It was called Rebound Ace. The difference between the Rebound Ace and the ordinary hardcourt is the degree of hardness. Rebound Ace is softer as a result of which when the ball bounces the first time its speed decreases. The speed and friction also depend on the materials used to prepare the top layer of the court.
