I like Ryoga more, but if I have to be fair, I'll give it to Byoudonin. All of their stats are unknown. They both know aura shot. And Byoudonin have 2 seen tech, I believe.
We know too little about Ryoga and Byoudouin's current strength.
@ Kaoz: Fanbook 10.5
Speed - 10: Much is unknown about Byoudouin, but in his match against Oni upon entering the U-17 camp, they were hitting balls back and forth so fast that a violent dust cloud engulfed the entire tennis court. This suggests that his speed is top tier.
Power - 10: Byoudouin has an extremely powerful glowing shot that can break walls just because of the violent air around the ball as seen in page 9 of chapter 95. Oni returned the ball, but he still received a massive cut on his face and the wall behind him was destroyed.
Stamina - ?: Even if we were to assume there is room for growth in his stamina, When he was wandering the world going through special training and living the life of a hermit, he acquired a hardy and tough body. The manga has not given information about his stamina, but we can assume it is quite high as seen in his match against Oni.
Mental - ?: Having gone through special training up on top of the cliff, it seemed he acquired the interdimensional power and a spiritual nature. Already now, there are no weaknesses.
Technique - 10: Even though by his 1st year in high school he was nigh perfect, it is expected that after the world campaign, he has obtained something even greater. He has learned techniques from all over the world, allowing him to win in nearly any situation.
Kurobe Memo: Can there really be a high schooler that is already this high a level? There is nothing to criticize about his true abilities, but his manners are crude. We should teach him some more respectful manners so he doesn't embarass the title of being an All Japan Representative.
@ Korean Kuroku: I know but from what we know so far, who do you think?

10.5 actually have his stats down as ?. Not 10.
And it look like someone just take Sai translation on here and add more things on it and add some number. You can see the orginal translation here.
Yeah, it's quite funny. The only stats that are different from Sai's are the ones that have numbers, the rest seems to be just a copy of his words. Dunno where you get that info ChinkieCandie but I wouldn't trust it at all, lol.
Like Ken and Hardy have said, those are fake. It's pretty obvious too, e.g. in the power description it makes a chapter reference, which just wouldn't happen in the real ones.
On topic, I'm gonna go with Byoudouin. We know he has something above GS and we don't know for sure if Ryoga does, and also his stats read as slightly better than Ryoga's to me.
Someone wrote those 10s on his wikia page. Got it from there. I don't edit Byodoin's page other than messed up coding. I do the wikia's music pages.
Just because it's on the wikia doesn't automatically mean it's correct since literally everyone can edit it. The correct fanbook entry is this:
I didn't think it was real since I didn't even touch his stats/page. But since he's the top U-17 player, some wikia contributor might of been stupid and made his stats max (if there is one). A lot of people put beliefs and its a long time for someone to actually notice that.
Changed the stats on his page.

Since their stats are unknown, I think the only way at the moment to measure them to each other is based on their showings, and based on that Byoudouin is superior, though we barely know their playstyle, so I think it's safer to wait.

i'm biased and would vote ryoga but i'm going to wait to see his skills.
we know he can return the gs and make the gs
he can also do more than 10 shots at a time.
