Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit


Eiichiro wins the final set against Alex in spite of his strain in his right calf.


Eiichiro manages to take the lead in the tiebreaker match against Alex but he has strained his right calf. Instead of telling the coach on his muscle strain, he decides to endure the pain and continue the match. In spite of the pain, Eiichiro continues to attack but the audience and Alex notice the sudden change on Eiichiro's movements. Eiichiro still manages to win the final set as Alex's final shot is considered out.

After the match, Coach Kevin calls Eiichiro (and Atsushi as translator) and tells Eiichiro that he should not do anything reckless if you have a goal to achieve. As Atsushi will bring Eiichiro to the medical center, Alex helps Eiichiro to stand and tells Eiichiro that due to Alex's hesitation, Eiichiro had won the match. The game ends in 6-2 3-6 7-6 (8-6) in favor of Eiichiro.
