Not to mention comparing them right now to HS wouldn't be fair. It's "talent", not to say "strength" or something like that. Give the current generation 3 years. and then try comparing the two generation by pitting them together with the current MS. The current generation doesn't do too badly, I'll say, right now. I don't think it's wrong to call them the greatest gathering of talent.
It's not just a weaker body. Everything improves with practice. In a year Fuji could develop insane new counters that are strong enough to return the glowing shot. Sanada could strengthen Rai to the point where it is as strong as the glowing shot. In a couple of years Sanada could have played Yukimura a couple of times and greatly strenghtened his mental strength too. They are all factors that play into matches.
Yukimura was called the child of God.... He earned it while he was in Middle school and all the other MSers.... I guess the writer means that their talents are so great none like their generation has been since in the past 10 years or so. but they just can't seem to show it.. ^__^
I think Yukimura, when at 100% is better than every Mser. Also Seigaku coach said No one ever took a game from Yuki. Considering he was at his 100% before his illness, I think he played some matches against top Msers that time. But no one ever took a game against him. Even Jackal was surprised when Koshimae took a game against Yuki. Which indicates he never lost a single game even in Unofficial matches. Considering he played with Sanada & Mouri before, losing no game against them is kinda an achievement.
But, Kawamura destroyed the lights sure, but I reckon if Date aimed for the lights, he could do the same.
Its just that Date has better aim so he can wipe out humans accurately as oppose to the infastructure around the court.
Kawamura got wrecked by Date and in terms of ability is NOT No.12 of the nation lol.
So in the 11-19, only Yukimura cruised through to a win.
Arguably Tooyama as well since Tooyama says "An eagle always keeps his talons hidden" meaning he held back.
Everybody truly struggled to get their badges as oppose to "they wasted 9-19".
Since Oni and Tooyama's shots were visible for everybody's eyes to see. However they didn't do the serving training that Ryoma was doing with his father.
Why else would Ryoma hit Samurai Drive.
It seems the amount of speed or spin on the ball of Samurai Drive can only be supplied from the massive energy that TnK provides.
Hence why he only used it against Kintaro and Ryoma and not Tokugawa.
The move that he used in a serious pinch against Kintaro, is the move he used to finish Yuki, (Didn't even finish him I know) but it wouldn't make sense for him to use it if he wasn't hitting the ball at the genuine speed of TnK.
More importantly, ONLY the serves that Ryoma hits were too fast for the eye to see. Which makes sense since he was doing special serving training with Nanjiroh something which Kaoz mentioned before, only Ryoma's
Considering that when Tooyama and Oni's shots were all visible, and same with Tezuka against Fuji, and Tezuka isn't the type to hold back against the final match that Fuji requested since they're like best friend.
I highly doubt Ryoma can rally with lightspeed returns. Since that would result in Byoudouin and Oni's 10ball thing being irrelevant since they couldn't dream to hit a ball back.

And Yukimura didn't win a single point. Rally is one thing. Winning points is another. Fuji without motivation can rally against Shiraishi, but he can't win point there either.
