Will a wet tennis ball travel faster than a dry tennis ball?

It depends. If a tennis balls are hit with the same amount of force, then the dry tennis ball will travel faster and farther. However, if the two tennis balls begin traveling at the same speed, then the dry tennis ball will slow down more rapidly than the wet tennis ball. The reason is the added mass of water. It would take more force to make the wet tennis ball fly as fast as the dry, but the added mass also requires more force to slow down the wet ball.

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. The elasticity is one of the factors in which a ball bounces and when things are colder, there isn't as much elasticity, so it will not bounce as well. Therefore, a dry ball (as long as it wasn't frozen in a container) will bounce better than a frozen one.

Are there such things as waterproof tennis balls?

Water doesn't enter any tennis ball that's in good condition and hasn't been punctured, so in that sense, every undamaged tennis ball is waterproof. But the fuzz on the outside can sure get soaked. I have made a waterproof tennis ball that makes even the fuzz keep dry. It is pure awesome.
