High-Level 4.5-5.5 Doubles Court - A new player joining in - what do you look for that makes this player belong on your court?

Calling out the Doubles Guru's out here.  Been in a situation where you are paired up with a new doubles partner that claims to be at the "right USTA level" - in evaluating this new player's skill-sets - what are the minimums that you are looking for what's your ideal?

I look for a couple things -
a good serve down the middle and into the body
decent return of serve - low relatively flat that the returner can come in behind
patience on volleys and use of angles
ah, yes.  the serve down the middle which doesn't give the returner any angles and serve into the body to jam which makes the netperson's life easy.  good stuff roger
