Best Answer

Players inspect the balls in order to see which has the least wear on it in order to serve with it. The balls fly faster through the air when the material is still quite compacted, but will be slower when they are fluffier. They can gain an advantage on serve when the ball travels faster, just the same as when they serve with new balls.
