But, what's this about Kite and Marui? What would Marui see in Kite? I don't really remember the Higa game very well, so maybe someone can fill me in.
Another possibility is that he faces Ryoga and loses in a close match, to prevent Ryoga becoming fodder if Konomi changes his mind and decides that he will face Ryoma.

Anyway I think this will be the sequence of the match-ups:
Byoduin VS Tokugawa
Tanegashima VS Sanada
Duke VS Yukimura or Fuji
Ryoga VS Shiraishi
Oni VS Akutsu
Ohmagari VS Fuji or Kirihara
Kimijima/Tohno VS Kite/Marui or Kirihara/Kaido
Ochi/Muuri VS Atobe/Niou
I didn't put Ryoma coz' I think Byoduin will defeat Tokugawa, and Ryoma might challenge him in the number 1 spot.. Same goes if Tokugawa defeat Byoduin...
Ryoga vs Shiraishi, why? Shiraishi won't stand a chance against Ryoga, is too soon for him to reach top 5, I doubt that Shiraishi will become top 5, he will never be able to be at that level. I would like Ryoma vs Ryoga, Ryoma has to be in the matches and he will beat Ryoga, there's no way Ryoma isn't going to appear in these matches as he is the main protagonist.
Irie could also face him and lose after a close match. But players like Oishi, Kawamura, Kabaji who are in the first string.. the heck... Ryoma has to definitely appear and beat a top 5, most likely Ryoga.
Oohmagari vs Fuji is what I think that will happen, with Fuji completely dominating in the end and winning showing his true power.
Kimijima/Tohno vs Marui/Kite it's a possibility, altough I think they'll face Shiraishi/Kirihara and win to stay in the top 10, I don't think they will be kicked out from the team just yet.
And Niou/Atobe are going to win. No doubt about it.
So, the HS that will remain in the team are Kimijima/Tohno, Oni, and maybe Shuuji and Byodouin.

Is it already confirmed that Duke's a power player? Or is anyone just stating it because of his appearance?
Duke VS Fuji: Well, I think Fuji has to have a counter against power player (If ever Duke is a power player)..
Ryoga VS Shiraishi: If you guys wanted Ryoga to stay in the number 4 spot and at the same time have a good much against a strong MS well I think Shiraishi is the best option... But of course Shiraishi will find his way to be a First Stringer...
Shiraishi/Kirihara doubles: I doubt we'll ever see these two again... Or maybe not in these shuffle match for the top 10 positions...
Ryoma may not appear in this shuffle match like what happened to Junior Senbatsu against the US team... Coz I think he will be in the number 1 spot but Konomi Sensei have to do the Byoduin-Tokugawa match.. And then whoever wins, Ryoma will challenge him..
