He didnt humiliate Migihashi. Only one got through. At that moment unfortunately the anime may have screwed up by making Migihashi awesome.
Why could Ryoma have broken it if he wanted to? He couldnt. Not til the end could he break it.
You say only shot to the right?? He had no choice. The technique forced it to the right. He only broke it at the end.
And I'm not saying he humiliated him. Echizen could have defeated him if it was an entire set. Migihashi can't pass Echizen as we saw, Ryoma has mounstrously improved and has surpassed players like Migihashi, and reached Tokugawa's level.
Tezuka Zone is very complicated. Since there is a different spin every time is is so hard to identify the spin and counter it. However with Right Saver, the spin is always the same: counter-clockwise sidespin, so Echizen could break it by hitting a backhand Drive C.
Also, just coz Ryoma has seen how doesnt mean he can easily do it. Inui has all the data on Tezuka Zone and his seen it longer than Ryoma. Your saying he can defeat coz of that? No.
As amazing as Ryoma is, it wont be easy for him to break Tezuka Zone since Tezuka is awesome-ness. Remember anime-fillers DONT count.
Point is, Ryoma would have likely lost that first game had it stayed with one ball. Migihashi seemed like he was all about testing Ryoma from the start. The way he said at the start ''Its the rule to accept challenges from Black Jersey Brigaders''. Migihashi didnt seem like he was trying to get a point with every shot he took. He was just showing off his Right Saver technique. Im saying Ryoma would win a fairly close match.
We don't know, but at least he returned that serve and was keeping up with him easily, before going to the mountains, Tokugawa crushed him, but now Ryoma has been able to rally with him comfortably, so he improved a great deal considering that. I'm saying at least he can hold his own against him.
Still, I think he has yet to get serious and has to show a technique that makes him above Ryoma. Probably, we should see him going all out against Byodouin, and finally defeat him and becoming the new No.1
And about Migihashi, he wasn't holding back at all. When he saw Echizen hit 10 balls, he couldn't believe it, that's why a ball got past him. Echizen would defeat him, I agree that in a close match, but Migihashi isn't able to hit 10 balls, so Echizen surpassed him. You can't deny that.

It could have been that the 2nd Court Doubles players played separately to take on Oishi and Shishido. I mean, Washio and Suzuki separately we can assume are Shishido level.
Or Oishi was playing doubles with someone and Shishido was playing Doubles with someone when we saw them in action.
Coz your quite right to be confused when Oishi's Singles skill level is fairly... Shit.
And dont be silly about Oishi defeating Kikumaru lol. The anime changed things. Kikumaru >> Oishi. Remember Kikumaru can use Seal Step to make a clone, and his stamina is above Oishi's. Kikumaru handed Oishi 2 points in the manga. IGNORE the anime match. Kikumaru WILL kick Oishi's ass. In the anime Kikumaru didnt even get serious or use his Beam or Bazooka.
Konomi doesnt run the anime. For stats and stuff the Manga is the one to reference. More so for Part II than Part I.
I put Ochi's Eye in. It's called Mental Assassination (for now).
Duke Homerun added.
How do we know it's Rank SS? All we know for now is that it is stronger than the 108th Hadokyu. But, the Kinatro's move and Kawamura's Final Hadokyu is also stronger than the 108th Hadokyu. So, how do we know Duke Homerun is stronger than both of those?
Well if Gin was blown away by Duke Homerun and only suffered a broken wrist from Final Hadoukyu...
In terms of whether Duke Homerun is superior to anything Oni can hit, we're not sure. Sai told us that there was something about Duke Homerun in relation to Oni's strength, but he couldn't translate it on the spot, so he wasn't sure exactly.
