Amane hasn't played in ages and Hirakoba was better than even before the Nationals were over, so I'm going with a bagel for Hirakoba.
Bagel for Rin. Amane is just weak and Hirakoba is miles ahead.
The only way Hirakoba can lose if he uses Giant Habu for no apparent reason and use up all his energy like he did against Fuji.

And it was fitting opponents since it was against Fuji.
But he didn't think Fuji would evolve in the match. Unfortunately for Hirakoba, he is in the manga and not reading it lol. This means he and the rest of the other characters have no idea that Seigaku characters are wrapped in Plot Armour.
It's not like people don't know Fuji had a reputation of being crazily good. It was triple match point (40-0) and Kawamura cannot return even regular Habu. Fuji, on the other hand, can clearly return regular Habu (not necessarily well, but he can definitely return it). Given POT still has to observe tennis rules, Fuji cannot return for Kawamura no matter what so the game was going to be over in 2 points anyway.
If the score was 40-30 and Hirakoba decided that a drawn out fight is risky (he was clearly getting tired) so he had to risk it all that'd have at least made sense.
Amane is just in this tournament to make one sided matches (joke matches... Amane... Coincidence?)
