Great! I think he is imitating Ma Lin first and after that Wang Liqin. The third one is imitating Wang Hao and the last one is imitating Liu Goliang.

You could actually read their names at the bottom, since they're in traditional Chinese characters :)
and yes, it's Ma Lin (马琳), Wang LiQin (王励勤), Wang Hao (王皓), and Liu GuoLiang (刘国梁)

Haha this is so good :D

Ma Lin was the easiest to recognize and Wang Liqin was immediately recoginzed by the service. Wang Hao was a bit more difficult but Guoliang was easy too :D

Epic stuff, would like to see more of these! :)

Funny how easy it is to recognize them! Should do some more like Mizutani and Ovtcharov or Boll!

haha I lol'd pretty hard at this vid. I thought that between Ma Lin and Wang Liqin was Ryu Seung Min because of his service.

Could have done the Wang Hao-specific serve from midtable...
The idea is quite good, but I don't like the realisation.

Someone should make a video imitating european players like Timo Boll prancing around, Samsonov skipping before serving, Kreanga's wide backhand, Primorac sticking out tongue while playing, especially serving, Michael Maze side-spin backhand etc.

Haha this is brilliant!

I remember seeing a few pro players imitating other players. If I remember I saw Ricardo Walther imitate Timo Boll somewhere on youtube.

Haha yes I was thinking the same.

I love how he does the quick wrist movement of Wang Hao's RPB and then changes to his slow forehand topspin stroke.

First, Ma Lin flashed in my hand due to the play style, his footwork and forehand, he always move for the forehand.
I thought the second was Walner because of the service; it turned out Wang Liquin as you guys said that.
Wang Hao was clear to me since his RPB is a trademark!
Liu GuoLiang was quite clear to due to his service.

I laughed too much!! haha

hahah, very funny.

You could read their names at the bottom though.

Without them I would have only been able to figure out Ma Lin and Wang Hao

It is Primorac and Mattenet after Waldner. The last one looks like Steger but the caption did not exactly spell like it (Steger = シュテーガー).

1) Boll (His crouch while receiving, reverse pendulum serve)
2) Samsonov (Straight toss serve, chicken flap forehand)
3) Ovtcharov (Unique crouching backhand serve)
4) Waldner (Serve, unique forehand swing and typical backhand block)
5) Primorac (Characteristic backhand serve, tongue out while serving)
6) Mattenet (Hilarious forehand form and tendency to lean back trying to play said forehand)
7) Kreanga (Unique service movement and famously huge swings)
8) The last one is indeed Steger, I checked the original video on YouTube and Steger was listed in the video description
