How quickly do tennis balls lose their bounce?

If you open a new can of tennis balls and leave them in the can without using them, it can take a week for the tennis balls to have a significant loss in their bounce. If you are using tennis balls daily, then it can be a matter of a couple of weeks to around three weeks until the tennis balls lose their bounce completely.

Does a room temperature tennis ball bounce higher then a heated tennis ball?

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.
