Soften the impact when hitting the ball

Impact the aerodynamics - slow down the spin and velocity of the ball when hit.

Because soft balls are always better

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.

Friction at the point of impact with the racket traded off with the aerodynamics.....

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.

Too long look at the ball in from one player to another player. And always so from the beginning of the game until the end of the game

The fuzz is what allows the tennis racket strings to "grip" the ball. That's how players can spin the ball, gaining optimum control over speed, flight path, and how the ball reacts on the bounce.
