If you notice something kind of strange, patterns, etc, post it here.
In every team match i can think of, whichever team won the singles 2 match won it in the end. Can you think of any contradictions to this?
Seigaku, that i can think of, has never lost a singles 2 match throughout the whole series, and didn't lose a match the whole series.
It is also true though for other teams
Fudomine vs yamabuki-Kamio beats sengoku, fudomine wins
Shitenhouji vs fudomine-chitose beats tachibana, shiten wins 3-0
rikkai vs nagoya seitoku-kirihara beats krauser, rikkai wins 3-2
In shin POT
Court 5 vs court 3
Tezuka beats yamato, court 5 wins 3-2-1
Just thought it was interesting

Actually, there are a few contradictions, none of which can be seen in the manga however.
In the Nationals, Joushuuin Dai Fuzoku Shimizu beat Midoriyama 3-2, but lost the S2 match 3-6. The same goes for Kushimaki Higashi vs Okakura.
But you're right regarding the matches that were actually shown. It'll be interesting to see whether this holds true for future matches as well.
This really is a great observation.
So Konomi kept the same pattern since the start haha.
whoops didn't remember those,
For example: People with twist serves or variations on them always play matches together
Echizen vs Shinji
Echizen vs Akaya
Echizen vs Yuuta(not a serve but still)
Akaya vs Flower guy(in doubles)
Flower guy vs 1st stringer (again not a serve but vanish looks a lot like an ultra twist spin shot, because when kin-chan is hit by it, he is knocked upwards not down.)
Maybe they have to compare twists or something but it does feel awfully common

-upon landing, the spin on it raises dust, and that dust covers the opponent's entire court
-afterwards, it bounces upwards
-what makes it generally hard to return is that you can't see from where it's coming, whereas the path itself relatively easy to predict
So yeah, you could probably view it like that.
I think that Vanish is similar to Kirihara's knuckle serve in a way, the path it takes after creating the dust is very similar.
The most powerful serve right now is Kawamura's final serve, and the fastest would be Echizen/Tezuka serving when in TnK
Anyone notice how Konomi has so far only had Lefties open doors with Muga no Kyouchi?
Yukimura and Sanada can open doors to it. <-- Right handed.
Chitose, Tezuka, Echizen and (his dad) The last 3 can open all doors to it. <-- All lefties.
Also, a lot of good players are left handed. Tezuka, Shiraishi, Kite, Ryoma, Nioh, Chitose etc.
How we are yet to a see a technique from Kenya despite the fact he is now ranked No.18
Or How Shin Prince of Tennis has had over 10 players unable to finish the match, or Faint at the end.
And we're not even far into the storyline at all.
Or how in Shin Prince of Tennis there have have been several OPK's already (One Page Kills).
We will hopefully see something from Kenya now that he has made the team. We may see more from him.
Konomi tends to use one page kills on fodder characters, which I think that the majority of the U17 people are right now unfortunately. I think that the top 10 people will get more time as they are in theory better. The only one page kill character that isn't fodder is probably kazuya.
I agree that certain people shouldn't be fodder like washio and shun(they were just like our number two doubles) but there will be more time and we can hope that popularity polls may save characters that he has neglected.
