Broad and Vague (大雑把 Oozappa) is the 142nd chapter of manga, Baby Steps.

Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit


After a number of games, Ide starts to counter Eiichiro's change-of-pace strategy.


Ide counters Eiichiro's change-of-pace attacks but is still considered an out. Eiichiro notices that Ide has hit the flat even though he has trouble before but he decides not to overthink about it since it is an out. The second point goes to Eiichiro as well as Ide's counter hits the net.

Eiichiro's next serve is a fault as he seems to be too sense. He successfully serves on the second time and attacks using change-of-pace strategy while avoiding the flat spin this time. Eiichiro's plan still working but Ide has finally grasped the timing of Eiichiro's low angle slice, thus, he manages to react faster and wins a point against Eiichiro. In Coach Aoi's point of view, while Eiichiro gets solutions from his notes, Ide gets answers almost immediately due to his intuition. While what Ide gets are broad and vague answers, he is still hitting the right spots. In Ide's case though, he is still having difficulty on grasping Eiichiro's tennis style because of the change-of-pace strategy but he seems that he has plans for countering the strategy.
