Also, I think its stated that they are a pair by the montly tennis reporter guy I dont remember too well although it could be that they are just close friends not an official pair.
And yeah, its why Rikkai are my fav. school without a doubt.
To have the luxury to have Yuki in hospital and Sanada relaxing in Doubles, put Marui in Singles 2 and still not worry at all about winning the match.
Marui in Singles would have still handled fodder Fudomine lol.
What's sad is that Fudomine only have ONE player who is definetely above even the likes of Jackal in Singles. I dont see Kamio and Ibu beating Jackal after seeing how Momo/Kaidoh struggled to get just one game.

Does anyone have a theory on why Mouri told Niou you can never reach the Pro level with his tennis style?
Does that mean Mouri is far above Niou?
They ARE continuous pair.

I reckon if they went full blast from the get go we wouldve got a worse score.
But yeah, Shishido/Ootori arent a crap pair. I just find it difficult to compare Chitose/Zaizen pair when Chitose only has Kamikakushi in Doubles and Zaizen we can confirm is below him after his embarassing stint at the Nationals.
If we saw Zaizen in a full match just once we could better predict.
Higa VS Yamabuki who wins?
S3 Kai VS Muramochi
D2 Aragaki/Shiranui VS Nitobe/Kita
S2 Hirakoba VS Sengoku
D1 Minami/Higashikata VS Chinen/Tanishi
S1 Kite Eishiro VS Akutsu Jin
(Chinen and Tanishi paired together for the Tie-break's thinking they would be a pair and have both played in Doubles at the Nationals so they could work as a pair unlike Kai and Kite who are yet to be shown in Doubles despite pairing for the tie-break. Hirakoba is w/out doubt the 2nd best on the team).
Look at Niou face. It's not a completely dominating face for sure.
Niou do the swap things to destroy Seigaku moral. Which succeed.
They win 3 game then, as seen here.
That's how long it take for Golden Pair to recover from the trick than Niou//Yagyuu used. There's no guarantee they will get those game from the start if they go all out in the beginning.
And since then,
and the game then end at 6-4. This means that Golden Pair have been getting 2 to 1 game once they started using this formation. The end score might have been 6-3 if they both go all out from started, in golden pair favor, even.
It's the "mind trick" that Niou used, just playing around. And Niou's laser is so that Golden Pair won't be able to see the real laser. It's all tactic.
@Ken sorry I didnt notice this, but yeah your right GP actually did well against them.
But I stand by the point that Niou/Yagyuu arent a good example as they are above them as in SPoT, GP have no chance of beating Yagyuu/Niou.
Yagyuu can hit two different lasers from the same stance, and Niou can become any schooler.
But I do agree that a Chitose/Zaizen pair probably wont overwhelm Silver Pair. I forgot how dangerous a pair Shishido/Ootori are.
To be fair, its simply coz weve been trolled by Konomi on the topic of Zaizen Hikaru. He promised much but he hasnt done anything with him. Glad the guys who did the PoT OVA's gave him screentime in that Shitenhouji OVA.
S3 Kai VS Muramochi. Muramochi was established as weaker than sengoku, I think Kai can beat a weaker sengouku. Kai wins 6-4.
D2 Aragaki/Shiranui VS Nitobe/Kita Of course we don't know much about nitobe/kita, though they did beat fuji/Kawamura. Aragaki/Shiranui are considered the weakest of Higa, and thus we can say a stronger pair couldn't beat fuji/Kawa, though of course fuji was more serious in this match probably because agression was involved. Though I will go ahead and give the win to Nitobe/Kita 7-5
S2 Hirakoba VS Sengoku Sengoku has only dissapointed through the series, Hirakoba is promising. I would give the win to hirakoba. 6-3
D1 Minami/Higashikata VS Chinen/Tanishi. I think this is the closest matchup and in fact the one that decides the outcome. So I will say it's close, I will give the win to Chinen Tanishi 7-5 Because Konomi seems to have developed a fetish on Tanishi.
S1 Kite Eishiro VS Akutsu Jin. Akutsu wins 7-5, but it wins.
Overall I think Yamabuki could win, but Higa has the advantage.
Higa would mop the floor with Yamabuki. Higa's players are so much more about that life than Yamabuki's. They even have a staple court-control technique; the only person with court-control on Yamabuki is Akutsu. The only person who would give Higa a run for their money would be Akutsu. Sengoku probably can't beat Kai.
He shows nothing to suggest he can seriously get past incredibly quick movement.
Sengoku is a sob story of this manga. He was introduced as training with Sanada, Atobe, (I think Yanagi), in place of where Tezuka would train, yet he sucks.
But yeah, Tanishi/Chinen would destroy the Jimmies who lost to Prefecturals!Golden Pair.
We're looking at 6-3 at best.
Beat Sakata who is one of the fastest players and was said to have the best motion vision out of everyone I believe.
Richard Sakata's a fucking clown. Don't take him seriously, even after the U-17 training. I bet even Arai could beat that ass.
