Singles Tier List
Only characters that had at least one match (or currently have one) are to be ranked. For Doubles, only players that played together before may be ranked.
Concerning the Tier Lists for Prefecturals, Tokyo, Kanto and Nationals, the above criteria apply to the given time frame.

Niou, I don't really know where to put him, but as Renji is still one of the three demons and the rest of Rikkai seems to be below them, I'd leave it with Renji>Niou for now. I could seeing him above Shiraishi maybe.
As for Ootori, just because he isn't a great singles player doesn't mean his tennis is bad, it's just better suited for doubles. He has a basic style of tennis, but with his serve, I could see his smash being pretty good as well, also he seems to have a good tactical mind.
How is Snake gonna break Inducement Formation?
Anyway, I'll put it down as DP>CP>SP for now.
Shiraishi should be below Fuji, simply because Niou's copy of Shiraishi was perfect and Fuji beat him down with Hoshi Hanabi. When Niou says the shot is unreturnable, it should go for Shiraishi as well. As for Renji I'd say they are pretty much equal.
I agree with the rest except Akazawa, seeing that both Mizuki and Yuuta were invited to the camp while he wasn't, I think we can assume the other two are better.
Added Crauza and Inui to Lower High.

But isn't blind spot a physical spot on the court. How do you get rid of space you exploit by closing your eyes?
You can't make Kaidoh hit where you want him to because he'll just throw a laser/snake at a random moment. You're gonna seal the middle and the side in one movement. But depends who his partner is I guess.
Exactly what I was thinking...but it looks like Nakagauchi lost to him, but I daresay Nakagauchi doesn't have any dbz move yet, so we'll have to see.Quote:
I don't know how Closed Eyes would help against Koori, but as it's Fuji we're talking about I can see him being immune against it to some degree.
If I see this right, we currently have two positions to discuss, Renji vs Shiraishi and Oni vs Yukimura? Assuming there are no issues with where I put Crauza, Momoshiro and Inui of course.
Where did you get the idea that Niou's copy of Shiraishi was perfect? He couldn't even perfectly copy Yagyuu, and he plays with him all the time. Niou's copies are never going to be as good as the real thing. I don't see any evidence from what we've seen so far that Fuji could beat Shiraishi.Quote:
At the time Niou copied Yagyuu it was only a mask, not the Illusion. With Illusion he copied even Auras, so he should be able to copy the way Shiraishi hits balls and how he moves near perfectly. Apart from that I can't see how Shiraishi would return Hoshi Hanabi, as far as it was shown, he has no way to prevent a cord ball when returning the fifth counter, if I remember correctly he also won because Fuji's Hakuryuu went out in the tiebrak.
Yukimura should definitely be way better then Oni. I doubt he'll have trouble returning the balls (he returned Ka and Rai without trouble, come on) and once Yips kicks in...its over. I don't see Oni pulling out PoP...but he might be able to "will" himself out of it. There's a reason his nickname is Child of God!

Felt like updating this, the new list can be found in the OP.
I agree with most of this, but I think that the Fuji/Kikumaru pair should move up a pair, as should Yamato. Yamato was beating Tezuka until Tezuka went Muga.
As for Yamato, I can't really see it. He loses to everyone above him, except maybe Shiraishi (and even that might be even), just because GUYU doesn't work on quite a few of them and the others are superior in other aspects.
Fuji/Kikumaru I'm unsure about. Fuji is weaker in doubles than in singles and we didn't get to see much of them. It's more likely than Yamato going up in any case.
That is true about Yamato. GUYU might just have worked because of how well he knew Tezuka's playing style, and how Tezuka worked off of people's actions instead of actually falling the ball. So I guess I concede to you about that point.
And Fuji isn't necessarily much weaker in doubles. He isn't as good as he is in singles obviously, but he's by no means bad. Him and Takeshi were blowing out Fudomine's Doubles team before Hadoukyou came out, mainly because Fuji's Tsubame Gaeshi turned the game around. True that we didn't get to see much of them together, but Fuji's a genius and Kikumaru is a beastly net player (making him perfect for doubles), and the little that we did see of them, they dominated. Plus, Kirin Otoshi and Hakuryuu are both very useful in doubles against the net player.
Moved Fuji/Kikumaru to High Tier, right below Kenya/Gin.

Yeah, I'd say those two pairs are about even.
Updated the Singles list. Lower Mid was restructured and looks like this now:
I will provide reasoning upon request.
I understand with Hiyoshi.
Although I wanna ask you are you sure he can be in the same tier as Oshitar. Y?
Get what I mean?
Yushi is meant to be near Fuji's level.
Also, this tier is the one right below Shiraishi and Fuji's tier right?
So yes, I think it's perfectly acceptable for Yuushi and Hiyoshi to be in the same tier.
Also I forgot that we made two more changes:
-Oni above Irie due to the 2nd String's match order
-Sanada and Atobe switched places, as Sanada apparently mastered BA and we theorize Atobe's AK to be worse than originally thought
