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.

I think CE would seal Kaidou's shot combo. Depending on how SSS works, BJK could potentially break through Heca though. As for Hadokyuu, you already said that due to Gin's and Kawamura's low speed stats, they shouldn't be able to spam it in singles, so that's not that relevant. They also damage the user to an extent.
That said, I'm not opposed to having an extra tier between B and C.
I don't remember Gyro requiring a shot combo? I just though he had to hit it from baseline in that form? Plus, I thought 5th counter isn't anything special when your hitting it. So, it's not to hard to connect with the ball? Same argument for Hadou's
For Taka -
We might need another tier for him. I don't see him being that high personally, Or I'd just drop him to the lower tier. His abilities are good but his stats are kinda bad. If the person can straight up out play him aka Krauser, Fuji, Niou, Kirihara, Yuushi, ect. Then he can't use his super move. Basically, nullifying his whole chances of winning the match.
I thought you were referring to the whole GL/TS thing, not GL on its own. In which case, what about Yagyuu? Kaidou's laser was supposedly a bit faster, but Yagyuu's technique is much higher, giving him better control over the shot, so they'd probably be equally difficult to return. Also if you return Heca with Hadokyuu, I don't see why the ball wouldn't just go into the net.
...oddly enough their best chance is to hit Fuji with it, Kirihara strat. So, that the ball doesn't fly out of the court and they can aim it a little higher. It'd be hard and Yagyuu has a much better chance to do it then Taka.
I see the main power of Gyro being the super spin on it. It should nullify heca. Either way, I think it's possible but not consistent. Perhaps not enough to win the match.
Holy shit Jyten's back haha
We've had Atobe the king back recently too
I'll conclude that Inui remains equal to Yanagi level.
Inui uses Data better than any DT in the series, but his downfall is his poor stats which forces him to wait 2-3 games to gather it.
Krauser, despite not being listed as one, is pretty much a Power-Player.
He relies on HB and SC which I feel Kawamura will be able to survive. They'll get locked into an awesomely long match with Kawamura winning due to his inability to go unconscious regardless of being sent towards the sky.
Is that a high "Consciousness-threshold lol?"
The Laser spammers(Yagyuu/Kaidoh) shouldn't lose to the Hadoukyuu spammers realistically.

For Kaidoh though, he can keep the hadou people running around all day with this snake. It'd see it come to a tie break where he'd win. Due to his stupid stamina and what not.
Inui has a 4 in Technique and 3 in Power, and a 3 in Power.
Considering Inui has a Serve that is at the top level for MSers, Inui can most certainly survive the first 2 games.
He'll probably keep his service game, scrap around for the next game. And give away one game.
Either way, 3 games can pass and he can gather data.
Actually, we're yet to see Inui not play against someone he doesn't have data on because during the School tournaments, EVERY Data player had some kind of data on every relevant school. Mizuki, Konjiki, Yanagi and Inui all had data on all schools.
Regardless of whether or not the particular individuals had met. Remember Yanagi knowing Kaidoh frighteningly well to help Jackal learn Boomerang Snake, or Konjiki knowing Kaidoh so well he could shit on Tornado Snake?
Or Inui telling people Hiyoshi's hobbies and whatnot?
Which is why I originally wanted to know Inui's scores in the Shuffles to get to the bottom of this.
Its perfectly valid that Inui is a strong Singles players and just needs to give away 2-3 games before he carries out an act of tennis (g)rape.
Let's imagine he plays against someone he has 0 data... let's say Tachibana as an example (I'm not saying he has no data).
Inui manages to do some aces and gets the first game. How much data can he gather thanks to that? I'd say 0.
Tachibana serves now, and he just rapes Inui because he's incredibly superior, wins every point in around 3 shots. How much data can he gather thanks to that? Again, around 0.
The thing goes on until Tachibana brakes Inui's serve... if he doesn't do it really early.
It's different than in doubles, where Kaidoh kept returning everything and, after all those long points and games (...as Kaoz said, 3) Inui FINALLY had collected his data.
Now then, we can asume that Inui and every other data player has perfect data about any other player in the camp... wouldn't that make Mizuki (who has better stats than Inui) a mid tier character? I don't think so.
We've yet to see Mizuki do well against someone who's data he has.
We have however, seen Inui beat Yanagi.
Do you see Mizuki beating Yanagi if he had Mizuki's data?
Its that simple. I think Mizuki sucks. I don't think he should be in a higher tier than a few guys you have in the bottom one personally.
Inui's stats, are out of the equation once he gets all of his Data perfect.
From that point on, he just kicks ass.
Tell me please, can you see Mizuki doing to Mitsuya what Inui did?
Even if Mizuki was given all of that data? Do you see this happening?
I say not a chance in hell. The gap between them is a big one.
3 games in Singles? I say 2-3, but fine then. If you insist. 3 games.
It still does not show Mizuki can be held to a near regard as Inui. Or Mid-tier.
That's still baseless.
Its crystal clear that Inui's stats hold him back but once he has data then he is a top draw player.
If you think Mizuki can do what Inui does or even close to what Inui does when he gathers data then whatever.
Mizuki is better than Yuuta as far as we know. Lol.
In fact, Mizuki just arriving at the camp and not having data against his Court6 opponent who beat him is STILL not an excuse.
Inui and Yanagi and Mizuki had data on Mouri and Ochi despite never meeting them ever.
So for Mizuki to be unable to gather data on his opponent is pretty unlikely or rather impossible.
Do you really think any of the Data Players would step onto the court with no sufficient data?
Can you really see Mizuki saying, "I'm a Data Player, but I've got no data. Oh dear".
I'm sorry but why should we assume his Mid tier?
Do you not see Jirou, Sengoku, Krauser, Hirakoba, Kawamura, Hiyoshi crushing Mizuki?? Seriously?
The only thing Mizuki has over Inui is mental strength. Inui has a stat one higher in power but other than that they have the same stats. I don't see mental strength as a huge problem for Inui.
We know special moves cannot be taken account of in stats and one of those moves is data. We also know that Mizuki lost to a 6th court opponent (who he could have gotten data on by watching him play a match in the camp just as Inui watched Mitsuya play Renji).
Inui beat a 1st stringer showing that he can most likely use data tennis more effectively than Mizuki.
As another point, if Mizuki is considered a mid tier character, then Koharu should also be considered a mid-tier character.
Koharu has the same cummulative stats as Mizuki, except 1 lower in power and one higher in speed. Then again with that 1 in power he was able to return the Jack knife.So I doubt that any power Mizuki used against Koharu would cause Koharu any problems.
I think we can all agree that Koharu is just comic relief and does not deserve to be a mid tier character. In the training camp on top of the mountain, he was unable to take the data of the court, while Renji and Inui were. Stats cannot be the way to differentiate data players. Inui has two-thirds of the cummulative stats of Mitsuya, yet with good data he was able to beat him.
Inui's ability to collect data is in more depth than Koharu and Mizuki. Koharu did not account for the spin of the GS tiring his wrists. Mizuki did not account for momoshiro and kaido's improvement mid-match. He also did not account for his data being incorrect.This suggests that he doesn't take into account the personality of the players when making his data. If he had he would have known that Momoshiro's power would increase when kaido's did.
In Inui's decisions he takes account of the individual's personality too. http://www.mangahere.com/manga/princ...is/c133/8.html even though in this case it proved to be wrong, the fact that he does take it into account suggests that the data is more in depth. Furthermore, when his data was wrong, rather than just losing (as Mizuki did to Fuji) he changed the course of the shot.

I wouldn't put Inui at any tier less than Renji, at the very minimum. He have the lower base stats, but I think he show that he's probably the data player who is confirm that can use data to its fullest potential so far in the series by beating 1st stringer with his low stats. Mitsuya is also confirm to be able to collect data mid battle in the databook, and he also has the mental of 6.
I mean, there will be some cases that Inui won't be able to get data. Maybe in a case like Black Lion Fanfics where top players just appear out of nowhere. But it's not like if they play, say, Germany, Inui is not going to do any research. He's going to. He shows this in PoT and even SPoT.
