Here is the EJS version of the same applet.
The blue arrow represents the friction force, while red arrow is the velocity vector.
The red trace represents Vx as a function of time Vx(t), while green trace represents $R*\omega$ of the ping-pong ball.
When $R*\omega$ equal to Vx, the ping-pong  ball become rolling without slipping (And the slide friction disappear).
