I came across this question a couple of years ago and found it a bit challenging back then. So I thought I will share it with you guys (hope it's not a duplicate):

If

United States = Concrete

United Kingdom = Grass

France = Clay

Then

Australia = ?

also, can someone help me with the tags please? :)

Answer:

Hardcourt (or whatever material it's made off - concrete like for the United States entry?)

Reason:

Reference to the type of court the matching Grand Slam (tennis) tournaments are played on:
Roland Garros (France) is played on a clay court
US Open (US) is played on hardcourt
Wimbledon (UK) is played on grass

Which leaves:

Australian Open. Which is played on hardcourt.

  • $\begingroup$ The US open now uses DecoTurf which uses a rubber on top if I remember correctly? $\endgroup$ – LiamH May 4 '16 at 9:01
  • $\begingroup$ Yea hardcourt versus concrete is a bit of a stretch. So is gravel/clay for that matter. $\endgroup$ – Tim Couwelier May 4 '16 at 9:03

Concrete

Because:

The Grand Slam tennis tournaments are played on hard court (US Open), grass (Wimbledon), clay (Roland-Garros) and concrete again (Australia Open)

  • $\begingroup$ How did that add to the existing answer? $\endgroup$ – Tim Couwelier May 4 '16 at 14:16
  • $\begingroup$ It doesn't :) But don't block other people to share what they know, not everyone is copying from you. Or, if you want to have a 1-to-1 talk with the OP, you can ask him for private chat where you can share riddles :) $\endgroup$ – crazyname May 11 '16 at 15:45

Hard court. It's the respective tennis tournaments' court type played in that country.
