I am interested in the program. However, the above statement has me a little concerned.

As others have noted, I am interested in the speed at impact only, not an average.

Based on the following website, http://advancedtennis.com/results/speedloss.htm, the ball loses an average of 27% in speed just before the bounce. Have you taken something like that into account?
