How does the surface affect the bounce of a tennis ball?

There are 3 kinds of tennis surfaces. Clay\Hard\Grass Clay Courts : This is a slow court and hence ball bounces high . Reason : Clay exerts a lot of friction against the ball's horizontal movement and hence the ball bounces high. Hard\Grass: These are fast courts. Reason: Less friction is exerted against the ball's horizontal movement and hence the ball bounces less. It is difficult to return slices in these courts. Technically Grass bounces less than hard. To understand the bounce: imagine what would happen when you CUT the ball using a rough surface(table tennis bat) vs a piece of glass. The result is obvious ; TT bat bounces the ball higher than glass.

Does the surface a ball bounce on affect the bounce of a ball?

Yes. Let's say it bounces on cement. It bounces high and hits the surface perfectly. However, if you were to bounce it on something like carpet, it would either bounce less high, or not bounce at all. This would be due to the fact that the carpet has padding so the ball would not be able to push off of a hard surface because carpet isn't usually hard.

I believe the tennis ball would bounce the highest if you were to put equal force on each ball and throw it to the ground.I don't know exactly why, but I tested this once, and it seems the tennis ball bounces the highest because of the fact that it has the most air pressure inside of it.

Yes, this is because when the tennis ball is in a heated environment warm air enters through the ball and because the temperature gets higher, the tennis ball would get bigger. When the tennis ball is bigger it would bounce higher.
