He's in the 'Estonia' t-shirt. Pretty impressive:

2350 or close to it.  Loved the rally at 3"45.

Are you guys serious? Sergei is clearly a former pro player who is still in great shape. He's definitely 2500+ in this video, maybe 2600+.

================
Edited:

8 years ago he definitely worth that much.

Today based on that video, some of the guesses (like 2300+) may not be that far off.

I just love his lazy backhand - it's just so effortless.  I wish I could play that shot.

I changed my playing style two months ago . I use short pimples on the forehand now. This is a revolution in my table tennis life. I enjoy it much and the result is good. Sergei

If he was ~2500 on Ratings Central, better add a few hundred for the USATT rating equivalent!

I would like to see a video of someone with the same style but much better than me.
It´s hard to find shakehand players who use SP in FH and inverted in the BH.

As a matter of fact, Hammond FA are my favorite short pips.

There was (a relatively short) period of time about a year ago when -- due to injury (I couldn't swing) -- I played with SPs for about a month, and out of 3-4 options I have tried Hammond FA was the best for me.

But I am not a big expert on SPs, I must admit...

Nope, Mattias Karlsson uses inverted on the backhand and short pips on the forehand. Yasaka Rakza X for his backhand and Rakza P.O on his forehand

They are sending me a sheet of Hammond FA and a sheet of Rakza P.O for my review. A more control short pips compared to a modern speed short pips. I will be comparing the 2 with some mentions of other short pips that I have used. I'm very much looking forward to seeing how they play.
