With Oobayashi's support, Miyagawa regains his confidence in order to win this match.
The audience gets surprised as Eiichiro gets the break first over Miyagawa. They wonder how will this affect the next game as Miyagawa's drive volley cannot be used and lose on the rally battle. Even though he manages to get the break first, Eiichiro feels that this next match is a dangerous moment for him. On Eiichiro's service game, Miyagawa has been doing careless mistakes. Coach Aoi thinks that the break shakes up Miyagawa as he can feel that Eiichiro is better than him now.
Miyagawa, on the other hand, is about to lose his confidence to aim to be a professional tennis player when Oobayashi calls out his name and gives him support. Miyagawa regains his confidence and takes a umeboshi as his refreshment. On his service game, Eiichiro notices the difference of his serve compared in his previous service game, that Eiichiro cannot rely now on his mistakes.
