You mean, in Britain and Australia in the 1950's and 1960's, "hardcourt" meant a clay court, but in South Africa (also descended from British tennis traditions and terminology) it meant something other than clay? Doesn't sound right.
Of course, today, "hardcourt" in the U.S. refers to a rubber surface.
