Indeed, starting with the 2nd serve Echizen slows his shots down.
And it still took Yukimura 4-5 games to even start returning them.
Here, he slows the serve down, but Yuki still can't react.
Yuki has to get some balls in play on Echizen's serve, so logically, Echizen slows down his serve even more or somehow Yuki's eyes begin to adapt to the slower pace.
During the seventh game of the match, which would be on Echizen's serve, you see Echizen smashing a ball, which would show that Yuki got a service return back into play.

When Atobe could not use Kingdom, I reckon it is user inability, not opponent interference. He just received that move and it requires time and effort to master it. If Atobe fully masters it, then it is absolute.
Plus, Atobe's never been in the highest tier. He's the most popular character, but he's never at the very top of tier rankings. He's one of the better players, but even with the assumed upgrade for AK that he'll receive, he's not going to leap above Echizen, Kazuya, or Oni. Tezuka would obviously remain above Atobe. :P
Although I still see it besting the likes of Fuji.
Thing is, with Shiraishi's Perfect Tennis, could that allow him to work his way around having a blind spot?
