Same ball as last year: Dunlop Fort Clay court, which they changed to last year (to copy Roland Garros). Most of the other smaller European clay events have also moved to Dunlop, the only exceptions are Belgrade, Gstaad, Umug and Bastad.

Ironically, after everything went to copy it, Roland Garros itself has now moved to Babolat for this year's event.
