Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit


Ogata's shots are getting better so Eiichiro has to keep his service game in order not to lose in the match.


For Eiichiro, his latest keep of his service game is the proof that his strategy is working against Ogata but he still has to have a powerful shot in order to win. On the other hand, Ogata is disappointed as Eiichiro has escaped his grasp but it gives him motivation to catch Eiichiro. His first serve in the tie-breaking game is a fail, making the spectators think that Ogata is stressed but for Eiichiro and Coach Aoi, that seems not to be the case as Ogata's serves are aggressive.

Ogata becomes careful and reacts well to Eiichiro's attacks, thus, he manages to break twice on Eiichiro's serves. Pressure starts to rise as Eiichiro fails to break Ogata's serves and he has to keep his two serves in order not to lose.
