    I'm SO glad to see Denmark will be in this thing.

    We're such a small country and I have only seen us represented before in Captain Tsubasa. Outside of that, no other places. I hope we'll see more of the team.

    I'm not very familiar with our athletes, but I do know we got a female tennis star, Caroline Wozniacki. As far as I know, she has been world champion a few times, but as far goes for our tennis guys, no idea.

    I can already feel my excitement for these and the upcoming chapters. I'm simply a sucker for these international matches with other countries. Poor Oishi, though;

    Uh I can't open the links, the page is in Chinese and I don't know how to register.

    Edit: I managed to enter somehow, no problem right now lol

    Man the last chapter gives me chills, it's been a long time since we last saw Fuji playing, the first match will definitely be a good one.

    Some addendums to the summary:
    This is the first Pre WC and it is mostly so they can market the teams to the sponsors and public.
    The Exhibition matches will only be over 1 day, so they'll only be facing the one country they draw in the lottery by the looks of it.
    By what Oishi says, not every country will show their full power and may hide their strengths for the actual WC but other countries will be playing to win as well.

    With that last part in mind, I wonder if Germany will bother to send out Volk and Texuka...

    Definitely looking forward to seeing Duke and Fuji, it'll be interesting to see what Fuji has in store after all the camp training and Duke is the G10 member we've seen the least of so far. Also curious who is going to appear in the other two matches - if I had to pick a pair I'd want to see, it's Byoudouin/Oishi for sure, their interactions have been pretty good so far.

    Another big question is if Japan is going to stand a chance against Germany here though. Given that there doesn't seem to be a next round to advance to, it doesn't seem implausible for them to lose here. That said, while I don't know about Volk I would be highly surprised if Tezuka doesn't make an appearance here, the whole point of him participating is to gain experience.

    From what we've seen, Ryoma seems to be on the main American team and not on a middle schooler team. Does that hold true for Tezuka too?

    I wonder in those cases if we could see Tezuka paired with a German MSer.

    For Ryoma, I can see him playing doubles if it's with his brother.

    If Tezuka is to gain experience for turning pro, he's bound to play on the HS team. I think it's possible that he and Ryoma would get paired up with another MSer as a result, but in the pre-WC it could also be strictly based on age in which case they'd still play together with a HSer.

    If that's the case, then Japan will not use their ace players (Tokugawa, Oni, Byodouin, Irie and Shuuji), but they're sending Duke who is the No.3 and definitely one of the strongest players. Maybe he holds back but against Germany that won't be enough, I'm curious about what kind of strong Msers Germany has, but they shouldn't be stronger than Ryoma or Tezuka at least.

    And yeah, I don't expect neither Tezuka or Ryoma to play in this Pre-WC. And Fuji might have gained new counters and this first match could be good to show his growth.

    I agree with LetalHawk. Byodoin, Oni, Tokugawa, Irie, and Shuji most likely won't be playing. Maybe Shuji will but probably not the others. Ryoma + Ryoga could probably work for the American team. I can't see Ryoma partnering up with anyone else.

    What other HS/MS pair would you like to see? Totally weird pairing but Kimijima/Kirihara. See how much patience Kirihara has with Kimijima's negotiation.

    Wozniacki's been World #1, although she's never won a Grand Slam, but she's lost a bunch of Finals. Take that as you will.

    Shuuji's still on the boat to Australia, so he won't be playing.

    I'd like to see Mouri/Sanada or Mouri/Niou.

    Ochi/Atobe would be an interesting pair too. Hyotei captain pair.

    I can't really imagine Shiraishi playing doubles with the HSs. Could be wrong though since Fuji/Duke was totally unexpected.

    I think Shiraishi would be paired with Tohno, so that he could control him. Not expecting to actually see this pair though since Tohno isn't exactly good PR. I think the second match will have either Oni or Kimijima and the third one's gonna be Byoudouin. There's no real point in holding Byoudouin back at least since the other competitors already know about him anyway, the biggest unknown factors in the Japanese team should be Tanegashima, Tokugawa and Irie.

    I think Oni shpuld be held back since he hasnt been on the first string in some time...they probably dont know he has TnK and they may not know the full extent of Kijin either depending on if he's used it in the WC before. But regardless, he's had quite the blank period so other cou tries dont know how he is now.

    Personal preference is that I want to see Kimijima and Marui, Ochi and Atobe, or even a non G-10 pair like Date and Niou or soemthing.

    Wouldn't mind seeing some more of Date/Nakagauchi/Hakamada, but given that they haven't really made any appearances outside of the filler it feels like they're just there to fill the roster (for now at least) and not to actually do anything significant.
