    Ever play on a drying court? A ball that even peripherally touches the edge of a puddle will bounce differently.

    Unless you sweat olive oil, I would guess none whatsoever.
    The felt on a tennis ball obviously has absorbing properties. More so than the leather of a baseball. And so liquid would be absorbed more into a tennis ball than into a baseball. A baseball is also significantly heavier than a tennis ball... Yet wetting a baseball is illegal. Methinks there's a legitimate reason for that.

    I'm sure that all of us have played tennis in mildly wet conditions. Does the damp tennis ball instantly dry off with every serve? Of course, it does not.
    * Yes, it's me (last seen on TW boards in 2009).
