The U.S. Open is the 4th and last tennis Grand Slam tournament of the year, and many tennis fans are paying attention to the news of the game, so do you know the difference between the venue of the US Open and the Australian Open? Xiaobian has sorted out the relevant content, let's take a look!
The difference between the venues of the US Open and the Australian Open
The types are different
The U.S. Open's court is a fast-paced hard court, the fastest of all the hard courts, so tennis will have a relatively strong impact and destructive power on this kind of field.
The australian open field belongs to the slow hard court, because the rubber material of the field contains some plastic particles, which increases the friction of the surface noodles, so it will slow down the speed of the tennis ball on the field to a certain extent.
The material is different
The material used in the US Open is concrete, and the elasticity of the field made from this material is very large, and the vertical component of the kinetic energy is reduced, so the ball bounces back quickly after landing on the ground and the height is not too high.
The material used in the Australian Open venue is plastic, which has a small amount of elasticity on the surface of the court, and the interaction time between the tennis ball and the field is long, which has a very good elasticity, so the tennis ball will rebound very high after landing.
Most of the colors of the US Open are blue, and the paint of this color can also increase the rebound speed and height of the ball to a certain extent.
The original color of the Australian Open venue was light green, but due to the later replacement of the production materials of the venue, the color of the venue also changed to a different shade of blue.
