It is a push. See you push it forward with the tennis racket, making it go forward, away from you. When you pull something, you're bringing it toward yourself. But when you hit a tennis ball, you push the ball away from you.

Why is a tennis ball bouncy?

Under the fuzzy exterior of a tennis ball is a rubber "shell". Rubber has a natural bouncy quality, but it's the compressed air inside the rubber shell that gives it that extra bounce. If you ever heat up a screwdriver and push it through the tennis ball, you should hear the air hissing out, or whooshing out in some circumstances. Hope this helped, Chris

How does air temperature effect the bounce of a tennis ball?

there is air inside a tennis ball. when it is hot, the air inside the ball is hot, and thus is excited. when the gas is excited it bounces around more inside the ball and causes it to be harder. when it is colder the gas is less excited so the ball feels softer. When you bounce a tennis ball on a hot day the ball is harder feeling and is essentially more elastic. this causes the ball to bounce higher. when it is colder the ball is less elastic and will not bounce up very high at all. think about the moment the ball hits the ground. if you threw it super hard the ball would momentarily get dented in. now if its hot the gas is excited and moving around a lot so it will push the dented in ball back out to its original shape very fast, where as if it is cold it will not push it back out as fast or hard so it will not bounce as high.
