If I could get the spin on my tennis ball to move that ball as far as that basketball moves, I might win a few more tennis games!
But for me the best effect I get from spin is giving the ball strange bounces, like if you put enough backspin on it you can get it to bounce back
toward the net instead of continuing on toward the other player as it would with no spin. I'm sure the spin during the ball's flight affects the
motion too as the OP video demonstrates, but that demonstration is a lot more impressive than what I see on tennis balls.
