Eiichiro is surprised at Okada's all-or-nothing attacks in spite of the critical situation they have in the match. As he cannot accept the fact that the outcome of the match depends on Okada, Eiichiro tries to do something to overturn the situation.
Eiichiro wonders how Okada managed to read his attack. Turns out, Okada realizes that every time he feels something bad, Eiichiro takes advantage of it to attack. This time, Okada uses his negative mindset to his advantage to counter Eiichiro's attacks. With Eiichiro's winning strategy not working anymore, Okada has managed to gain the break.
While Eiichiro is panicking that Okada breaks his service game at this critical situation, he still manages to calm down himself and recomposes himself. Now that his strategy is crumbling, Eiichiro decides to create another strategy from scratch. For the mean time, he hits slices in order to buy time and more difficult to hit with jump shots. While Eiichiro gets lucky to gain point, it does not change the fact that he is cornered. He is even surprised that at this critical situation, Okada still hits high-risk shots - as if he is not aiming for championship like Eiichiro. As the match continues, Miyamoto comments how the tennis world is going to be interesting as Okada is starting to become an attractive player and Eiichiro's usage of control and strategy.
Eiichiro cannot accept the fact that the outcome of this match depends on Okada. As he is not satisfies with such outcome, he will do whatever it takes to win the point - even though they are only small changes.
