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):


United States = Concrete

United Kingdom = Grass

France = Clay


Australia = ?

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

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


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.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, you got the idea, but I think the answer itself could be improved :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The US open now uses DecoTurf which uses a rubber on top if I remember correctly? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yea hardcourt versus concrete is a bit of a stretch. So is gravel/clay for that matter. $\endgroup$ Commented May 4, 2016 at 9:03



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? $\endgroup$ Commented May 4, 2016 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 :) $\endgroup$

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