Best Answer

The smoother the surface the faster it is. Polished hardwood, such as a Basketball court is the fastest surface I have played on. Smooth polished cement/concrete is a close second. After these unusual surfaces, various hard court surfaces are fast depending upon the amount of grit used in the surface treatment and the wear on the court. Grass is also quite fast especially if damp, but not wet and maintained short enough. Of the normal ATP surfaces well maintained grass courts are likely the fastest.
