    The real question is: What level male players can this girl beat 80-90% of the time? In other words what is this girl's male NTRP level?!
    Posts addressing how pretty, hot etc she is will be reported!:p

    Apparently she played some ITF tournaments but stopped competing last year. I didn't know when I first watched it.

    If I stayed on the BL, absolutely not.

    If I could somehow get to the net without being passed easily, I'd have a chance.

    Is this in new york, next to the hudson?

    edit:

    ah thats audrey. she actually has her roots in my country (switzerland). She is about a 5.5 Womens. So I think a ntrp 5 / a good ntrp 4.5 man should beat her.

    Minimum 5.5, look at her movement. It's a pro class.

    she's played some tennis..I don't find her strokes to be extraordinary by any means. I'd like to see her serve.

    Yes, need to see serve and serve return.

    Those are 2 biggest shots which determine how she would do in an actual match against a good male server and/or good male returner.

    If her returns are mostly like those at 1:24, I'm in trouble. :eek:

    Her serve looks a real mess. I'd still be lucky to win a game though.

    She seems to meet the biggest criteria for pro tennis: can hit the crap out of the ball and still make a good shot 90% of the time.

    Her serve is her biggest weakness.

    It's not going to trouble any guy at 4.5 and above.

    Her groundies won't look so aggressive once she's defending against tough serve returns.

    Lol you mean she would beat 5.5 male players?

    5.5 male players would beat most of the wta tour.

    So a 5.5 female player can play in ITF tournaments? I thought you would need to be at a higher level for that.

    Anyway she hits the ball hard and flat, her serve looks like it has nice pace but again very flat.

    She has no spin in her shots.

    She seems like a typical wta aggressive baselining woman hitting hard flat shots.

    She has a ton of tennis and match experience behind her and trained since she was a kid.

    I would say she would beat the crap out of most of the forum posters here.

    I would say really good players such as @nytennisaddict @J011yroger might be able to beat her.

    Good 4.5 male player id say or higher would have alot of advantages in terms of serve and having much more topspin on their shots compared to her and ability to hit more angles compared to her flat power hits and trying to outhit people.

    Thats just my guess maybe im completely off.

    Yeah I have a feeling you're completely off! I have seen 12 year old junior girls beating really good male players like 4.0 level!!

    Well yea but 4.0 vs 4.5 is a huge difference as is 4.5 vs 5.0, the difference is so huge i would bet the higher ntrp would most likely bagel the lower player easily on average.

    I wonder what j011y and nytennisaddict think about their chances.

    Im pretty sure this girl would bagel me atm :D

    She only plays over her head so she will be rated a little artificially high. Looks about like a UTR 9-10 for girls, it wouldn't be a walk over but I like my chances.

    I have no clue how she would ever break your serve unless u had a pretty bad service game, so you would most likely need just 1 break of serve in order to win.

    That would be the plan but opponents don't always follow your plan!

    Given the time here I'm guessing something like "Swiss girls with nice legs that didn't make ITF and need a cuddle"

    Good player. So consistent.

    But dreary court. Gray skies. Loud traffic. NYC looks awful.

    0-6 0-6 for sure. My reasoning is not blurred by sexism.

    The traffic is not so loud anymore, and the dreary sky is an anomaly.

    The main problems are that it's expensive and windy.

    Yea but its always hard to judge level from video.

    When you play with the player for real he might be muuuch better than you expected... or worse :D

    I suspect if it was a male player doing the exact same things in that video, people might rate him a 5.5. That's my point.

    My guess is she can go toe to toe with a 5.0 male player. I might be wrong of course.

    She could go toe to toe with some 5.0 guys, but the good ones would annihilate her.

    Yeah she would beat the living crap out of most posters, but id say players like @J011yroger have a good chance of beating her, he can serve what 120-130mph, that kind of serve would give wta players real problems.

    I sent a message to Brent Abel on youtube saying that there is some discussion on talk tennis forums about senior good players vs 4.5 younger players and asked what he thought about it and he replied ' ratings don't matter, you gotta go out and play the match'!:)

    She would beat male 4.5s easily. 5.0 would probably beat her, 5.5 would easily beat her.
