Tennis Players blow on their fingers to keep them dry so they have a good grip. Being a tennis player/coach myself, we are looking at the felt on the ball. The tighter the felt the faster the ball will travel through the air. Therefore if you are trying to serve hard down the middle you want a tight felt ball. Also if you are hitting a slice serve out wide you also want a tightly wrapped felt ball so it skids and stays low. If for instance you are seriving a kick serve out wide or into the body, it doesn't matter as much if the felt is tightly wrapped or not. They always throw one ball back, because if you carry an extra ball in your pocket you can actually wind up hitting it with the butt cap on your racket and it could mess up a paticular shot. Serve speed is also very important, a 10 mph difference can mean the difference between a short and week return versus a deep return which needs to be won by rally.
