What will bounce higher a frozen tennis ball or a dry tennis ball?

Technically, a frozen tennis ball will not bounce well because of the temperature.

Therefore, a dry ball (as long as it wasn't frozen in a container) will bounce better than a frozen one.

No, a room temperature ball does not bounce higher than a heated tennis ball. In fact, the heated tennis ball will bounce higher than its room temperature counterpart. This is because tennis balls rely on a high pressure internal pocket of air for their bounce. Heating the tennis ball would increase the pressure of the air inside the ball (pressure varies as temperature) which would cause the tennis ball to bounce higher. This holds (albeit for different reasons) for most solid balls as well, such as baseballs.
