Who is the 4 player?
( i would vote for the red player)
I think black head band guy is the 4.0. The guy with the blue headband reverse split step when receiving made me chuckle, not surprising you aced him at 3:27.

Good tennis all round though

Thanks but the USTA did not bump me as I expected. The good thing is I get to play in mixed 8.0 with my 4.5 partners.

You are correct. He is a bit rusty from a year off.

I think you all looked pretty good for 3.5, would expect you to do well there and ok in 4.0 on the lower courts.

How do you and your partner do? I've never run into a pairing where the woman was the higher-rated player so I'm wondering how it differs from when the man is higher or they both are the same.

I believe @schmke's stats showed 4.5F/3.5M was the least advantageous pairing [4.5M/3.5F being best followed by 4.0/4.0].

I was paired with a 4.5 female that has been to nationals several times. She crushes overheads and volleys at the net. She has a low slice return that I can be aggressive on. My job is to serve smart.
I can place the serve well so that sets her up at the net. We went undefeated in the season at D1 and won 2 out of 3 matches at sectionals. It was some good tennis and fun.

How would you do in our doubles match if you traded me for a 4.5 woman?
