So there was Grass, indoors carpet, indoors hard, outdoors hard and the only slow surface was clay.

That's also why Emilio Sanchez doesn't have a singles slam and would have had a dozen otherwise.
There was a few slower hard courts. Aussie Open was always slower than USO, Miami Masters was always on the slow side, as were some of the Asian tourneys in the 90s
