my thoughts are, this match could be dragged out , even the coaches thought it would be fast , now they just walk indoors! and its the best of 3 sets.
2nd is ochi , aka the mental assassin! (according to data) . I hope he's not like yukimura and have Eye powers, but his death gaze appears to "hint" so. It seem like ochi 's gaze make atobe doubt himself now.
predictions, Having Niou potentially becoming any player including the opponents is way over powered. I really dont know who will win. Look at Niou-Atobe, they are heavily sweating and depend on super powerful skills that drain stamina. The 1st stringers aren't even sweating that much. and they probably assumed to have synchro as a doubles pair.
although niou can counter synchro by making himself a clone as he previously shown before. i think they will have a hard time to win. Niou can even become ochi or yukimura and take senses away if possible. even atobe cant evolve that much. it can go 2 ways the jr highs will win because that's the point of the storyline, or they will lose showing that the high schoolers are too powerful.
Ochi is trying to break Atobe down with his Death Glare or something similar to Yukimura's Yips but way weaker. I think that Niou will become Sanada, Yanagi and Yukimura since Mouri said the day before that he wanted to challenge Rikkai's Big three, so I see that like a preview. Moreover, Atobe Kingdom is useful when Niou uses Tezuka Zone, as it proves to be a deadly combination.
It's true Ochi/Mouri have more stamina since they aren't even sweating, and I'm looking foward to their true strength. But in the end, I think they'll win thanks to Atobe overcoming Ochi's mindgames and Niou becoming Atobe and confuse their opponents, then the real Atobe focuses and hits winners with AK. I think first set goes to Ochi/Mouri, second set to Niou/Atobe, and the third and last set to Niou/Atobe after evolving and defeating them finally.
I wonder if Ochi/Mouri have synchro, but if not, I don't like they're higher ranked than Date/Ban since Ochi/Mouri would get killed by Danji No Haru and Danji No Natsu (a Kabaji shot blew their rackets away, so their power must be one of their weaknesses maybe).
A proper pair like Date/Ban should kill Ochi/Mouri haha.
Also, in Doubles AK is just a WASTE of stamina. 2 blind spots at once? Nah, after spottin one guys blindspot the teammate will cover him. It just means Atobe wont get that many shots go past himself but really he should stop being dumb and stick to his smashes.

this match can go many way thanks to niou, but i wonder if the point of these matches is for the jr highs to prove themselves and be at teh high school level. it all depends on konomi? I cant see all the jr highs taking all the high school spots.
With who for pair Atobe can do Syncro?
If Duke wins his match and Ohmagari too, then screw this manga for keeping those characters as they don't mean NOTHING to the storyline. On the other hand, Oni, Ryoga and Shuuji proved to be stronger than we imagined much like Byodouin, but I'm sure Tokugawa will win, so screw Byodouin.

I hope Tezuka summons the dinosaurs and Byoudouin gets freaking T-Rex'd to death. That 35 year old manchild has no place in this world.
Its possible that ochi and mouri are irie style trolling atobe and niou, because besides returning zero shiki serve and the mach serve I'm not really seeing much from there end. Of course keeping up with atobe kingdom and a tezuka illusion is a massive achievement, but we were all expecting more from the top 10
Although to be fair, Ochi practically an Ootori with fantastic Mental, Technique and likely Stamina. Which would make an amazing player.
So for now Im just waiting for something extra from Mouri. For him to be a Top 10 member, and for the High School Doubles Specialist to have such a nickname, he must have more.
If Atobe overcomes, Mach Serve still kicks their ass. Mouri has yet to do anything. Once Mouri does something, they seem screwed to me.
Really hoping for Atobe/Niou to lose. They have had too much focus on them although I know its coz they are extremely popular a loss would suit them nicely lol.
Could pave the way for the next MSer to crush an 1st Stringer or something lol.
