New tennis balls -- with lots of fuzz -- move faster than ones where the fuzz wore off. So figure that in your answer

new tennis balls move faster because they're new and more bouncy. Old ones without fuzz are old and have lost some of they're bounce.

The fuzz creates drag which helps stabilize the flight path of the ball. This principle is also used with dimples in Golf balls.

The fuzz on the tennis ball creates more drag allowing players to have more control over the ball, last longer & resist staining. The fuzzy ball teaches us how to handle pressures & all types of treatment at work.

tennis balls are optic yellow and fuzzy for better visibility, and to lessen the impact on the joints,when hitting it hard with a racquet

To clearly mark where the ball has hit? I dont think the fuzz can affect aerodynamics by much.

Because the friction of the fuzziness connects to the waffle on the tennis racket, therefore propelling the ball to new heights as it soars over the net.
