Marui Bunta/Kite Eishirou
Tachibana Kippei/Chitose Senri
Doubles in POT is not a function of the individual strength. Synchro is the trump card, and Tachibana and Chitose can potentially have better than normal synchro while there's no indication Marui and Kite can synchro. Even if both team can't use synchro, the 7-6 margin WoK lost to court 3 is the closest margin for a non synchro team versus synchro team that didn't involve people passing out. I assume synchro dominance over non-synchro is absolute. The Golden Pair are nowhere near the top individually but they dominate double teams when they're in synchro, so even if court 3 is a weak doubles team, the fact that they can synchro puts them unfathomably ahead of all non-synchro team. Yes, it's possible Marui/Kite is the one non synchro team that can defeat a synchro team, but they just haven't shown enough to pull it off. You'd probably need a team like Tezuka/Atobe and even in that case, Atobe ended up synchroninzing with himself and they weren't playing a synchro team either.

Next day it's said there will be 10 days of 5 shuffle matches.
1st Stringers arrive, 11-20 get fodderized.
A day goes by to take in the fact they got their asses kicked and Byoudouin bullies Tokugawa and Ryoma with Ryoga saving them.
And G10 challenge the next day. So maybe just a day or two over a couple weeks at the very most.
Only a few people are making significant and rapid improvement. Marui and Kite aren't one of them which is true. Besides the apparent Mojuu no Synchro that we don't know if it is even mastered, WoK aren't one of them either.
So the team shuffle is D7, from there on it's 10 days until the 1st Stringers return, so D17. Then another day for the 11-20, meaning the G10 matches are at least 18 days after the camp started.
The manga never once said days had gone by between each shuffle.
Although if the Pair Puri's said so instead of the manga I'll go with that.

But the Pair Puri's say ''________ Do not have a match at this time''.
If I could be given a link to where it says one shuffle a day.
Not that I don't believe it but there has been no mention of many days going by from their arrival to the Team Shuffle.
