I agree with Mark on the guy in black. He has a well connected serve, that is all the linkages go in continuous smooth motion. He would be a higher 4.0/ lower 4.5. He guides his backhand open faced and doesn't pronate on it much.

I used to play with/against a ranked 4.5 doubles player. His mixed doubles team was in the 4.5 category and he was 58 years old. He plays faster and better than the guy in black by a good margin.

Yeah, I would say the guy in black could be a 4.5.  But he is the one that falls down for no reason on the second point.  :-)

He hits a nice CC forehand dipper.  His backhand does not have much power but he seems to be consistent with it.  He has a nice service motion too.

well obviously the strongest player is the guy in the white with the white hat and black shorts on the side closest to the camera as that is me...  AHAHAHHA no I really don't know the level in America anymore, so I was curious.  of the three of them, they each have pluses and minuses.  the black shirt has GREAT groundstrokes while the white shirt, our opponents, although a bit unorthodox was pretty effective, flat forehand, good volleys, didn't miss too many backhands--I don't know.  I would think the black shirt is at least 4.5 but is that too high?

Well some shots look pretty good, but there are many errors too. The guy in orange has a massive foot fault that he should really work on fixing.  Lots of slices out there.  I would say that it looks like strong 3.5 or maybe lower 4.0.  Thanks for posting this.  Of these four players, who do you think is strongest Gary?
