As with most any other shot in tennis, hitting a slice requires the player to be moving forward, which puts his/her weight behind the shot (in that respect, the concept is similar to that of Bowling, boxing, Baseball, football, etc).

Tennis ball have momentum?

Momentum is calculated by taking the product of mass times velocity. Thus, a moving tennis ball would have a nonzero momentum. However, since a tennis ball has a relatively small mass, it would need to have a high velocity in order to have a large value for its momentum. Since velocity is a vector (having both a magnitude and a direction), momentum is also a vector. When a tennis player hits a tennis ball with his racket, he imparts a force onto the tennis ball, which changes the direction of its momentum to return it over the net. (The value for this change in momentum is called impulse, which is equal to the product of the force applied and the time for which it is applied.)

How does momentum play a critical role in tennis?

Disregarding the fact that that's a rather moronic question, momentum is required to maintain the movement of the ball through the air from side to side. Without momentum the ball would be stationary, along the the tennis rackets and players body. Which would defeat the purpose of the game.
