    Does Nadal hit with enough topspin that he could keep the ball in playing on the moon

    Does Nadal hit with enough topspin that he could keep the ball in play on the moon ??

    This question could go in different directions - just curious to the responses..

    No way at all, it would just keep going as there wouldn't be enough gravitational pull from the mass of the moon to bring it back down. Also you wouldn't get the wind drag that makes the ball act like it does when it has spin on it.

    Yea, I guess I forgot there is a lack of gas on the moon therefore topspin has no effect. Here's what I should've asked. Which element brings Nadal's topspin ball back to the ground with greater effect - his topspin, or gravity?
