Indian Wells and Miami have always been (possibly) the two slowest outdoor hardcourts.

AO with rebound ace was maybe a bit faster than IW and Miami, but still quite slow and high bouncing.

Cincinatti and USO were clearly faster than IW, Miami and AO.

The speed depends on many things: the weather, balls, how they resurface it each year,....

Dubai this year has been possibly the fastest outdoor hardcourt conditions I've seen in some years.
