Wet, because in has more weight on it. If a tennis ball is wet it can't bounce it just falls and stays on the ground.

Does water affect a tennis ball?

A wet tennis ball is a ruined tennis ball. It does not bounce as high. You can dry a tennis ball quickly by hitting it against a chain-link fence repidly for a little while. Once the ball is dry, then you can use it again.

Does a wet tennis ball bounce lower than a dry one?

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.

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.

How are tennis balls affected by environment?

Tennis balls are affected by the environment in a few ways. The environment can affect how it bounces. Warm air makes the ball expand causing it to have a higher bounce. Cold air makes the ball contract and can make it harder to bounce.

Which tennis ball bounce higher a frozen one or a unfrozen one?

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.
