Court type from fastest to slowest...

Could you please put in order these courts from fastest to the slowest? This is for everyone's knowledge. Let's brainstorm!!!

U.S Hardcourts (Cincinnati, Montreal and U.S Open)
New Wimbledon court type (slight clayish considering the past)
Indoor Carpet
Indoor Hardcourt
Old Wimbledon court type (I think it changed in 2002)
Clay court
Rebound Ace (Australian Open)

First, don't know the differnence between two Wimbledons..

Also, define "fastest" and "slowest".. If it is a measure of ball energy absorbtion, then the order is following..

Indoor Carpet
Indoor hardcourts
US hardcourt
Rebounce Ace

If it is a measure of game speed, i.e. , the smallest average time interval between the strokes on both ends, then it is probably:

US Hardcourts
Indoor hardcourt
Indoor carpet
Rebound Ace
Clay court

There should be a poll of this question, it's very good. All the TMS and Slams.
