On May 30, 2007, the Australian Open and Tennis Australia announced Plexicushion as the new Australian Open surface, replacing the Rebound Ace surface that had been in use since Melbourne Park was opened in 1988. The surface was installed in time for the 2008 Australian Open, and was accompanied by a change in surfaces at the lead-up tournaments to the Australian Open.[1][2][3]

Indian WellsEdit

A similar hardcourt surface, called "Plexipave", is in use at the Indian Wells Masters tournament.
