Hakamada Izou/Mitsuya Akuto
Tachibana Kippei/Chitose Senri
this one's tough for me. i like chitose/tachibana pair but they got defeated by synchro of a lower that 1st stringers
while i can see chitose and tachibana evolving their abilities, (beast synchro) ,and their teamwork. I can even image chitose opening another gate of muga.
the data guy is the one that taught renji, so he appears the master of data tennis. even if match wins are situational ,meaning.. can i say he's better than renji but suckier than inui who is generally seen as lower than renji. its troubling to rank based on data ability. data tennis relies on previous recorded data or data recorded during the match.
i would make it a very close game with chitose/tachibana pair winning barley vs Hakamada/Mitsuya,
although vanish is a good skill, in a doubles match i feel it is more easier countered than in a singles match.
I dont know the teamwork potential of Hakamada/Mitsuya.
so due to evolving abilities and team work i favor more of chitose / tachibana. even if the other guys are 1st stringers i dont know their teamwork abilities.

This is a tough one. Both sides have good arguements as to why they should win. All four players have great moves, but in the end, I think the fact that chitose and tachibana can synchro will win them the game. Anytime there is synchro, synchro wins ( although I think Atobe/Nioh should definetely have lost that match). Hakamada and Mitsuya don't seem to have any penchant for synchro at all.
7-5 to Chitose/tachibanan. Hakamada will keep his serve and the data might kick in later, but Chitose and Tachibana will overwhelm them overall.
Since Tachibana and Chitose have lost their match in the manga, (going by the Konomi pattern) their next match will have upgrades. They used their special synchro in the game they played but it appears to not have been controlled. Since Konomi wouldn't give them screentime and not evolution, that means it is to be "expected" for Tachibana/Chitose to have control over it now. I would also expect Chitose to have evolved to use Saiki in doubles, and possibly a new upgraded Tachibana technique. These things are LONG overdue, and I have no doubt Konomi knows this.
Basically, my argument is that of Tachibana and Chitose would not be able to play this match and not evolve.
Tachibana/Chitose wins 6-4
Actually, Chitose might be smart enough to figure out the principle behind Vanish. He unlocked SKnK which requires high intelligence (or at least experience). Also he created Kamikakushi, a technique which causes the ball to disappear from sight... like Vanish. Having created a disappearing shot of his own, Chitose probably would understand how Vanish works and would be able to return it. My vote goes to Tachibana and Chitose winning.

Hakamada and Mitsuya lost recently. Why won't they evolve?
Tachibana and Chitose could only win in the event that they get an upgrade, or the storyline confirms they can use Mojuu no Synchro at will.
Chitose has poor sight in one @Fuji Shusuke. If anybody returns Vanish, it won't be him that's for sure.
Also, the whole SKnK in Doubles thing is still impossible according to the storyline, so why people have been mentioning it makes no sense.
If we are going to base every argument on possible improvement then it makes the tournament pointless.
Since every MSer might get an upgrade.
I can concede that Tachibana/Chitose can defeat Hakamada/Mitsuya pair however, since Data can't last forever against guys like Tachibana and Chitose who love to hide their abilities.
I don't see them losing again. They'll have to win at some point, plus I think Tachibana/Chitose pair can control perfectly Mojuu No Synchro, I don't think is weaker than regular synchro.
If they manage to do that, the only concern would be Vanish, but I think Chitose or Tachibana would return it after a few tries, specially with Mojuu no Aura as it provides a boost in ability. Also, with synchro they would completely win as I don't think Hakamada and Mitsuya would have anything to fight back. Also, Mitsuya's data tennis wouldn't be that useful here against a pair that uses Synchro. Tachibana and Chitose win this 7-5 or 6-4, of course improving during the match and winning with Mojuu No Synchro.

On the assumption they can control Synchro then a 6-4 WoK win seems legit.
So, improvement and plot seem to be a legit assumption for everyone? I know whos winning when it's Ryoma vs anyone then.
Even Beast Synchro isn't enough, cause we haven't seen it and (apparently) it wasn't enough to beat a 3rd court pair...
I'm still voting for the Hs.
if synchro vs synchro the better team with the better abilities win, but regular synchro beats beast snychro?
that would require discussion.
Then the next time it appears much longer. We'll see with Sanada towards the end of this year anyway.
I believe that since Oishi/Kikumaru got Synchro only for a brief stint of a few points, Chitose/Tachibana got Beast Synchro only for a few points.
Its the only logical explanation on how they could lose to Washio/Suzuki in a Synchro battle.
It means they were in Synchro for a few points and exited like Kikumaru/Oishi did during the match. Then with Tachibana/Chitose VS Synchro, obviously the Synchro won in the end.
