Why place the ball next to the racquet prior to the toss?

    I have noticed that several players place the ball on the side of their racquet prior to starting the toss? Why is this done?

    a. To assure better coordination between the tossing and hitting arm;

    b. To take the stress away from the hitting arm (so that it stays loose and relax);

    c. It looks good as compared to those who start without this syncronization.
