The Nationals are coming and Seishun Academy has started training harder than ever! During practice, Rikkai Junior High Schoolâ€™s 8th grader ace Akaya Kirihara stops by to spy on Seishun Academy's team. Luckily, he is caught and escorted off the grounds. But on the way out, he bumps into none other than Ryoma Echizen, the Prince of Tennis.
Pressure rises to the surface as these two ace players size each other up knowing that someday they will duke it out over the net to determine the better player! Soon after, Ryoma and Momo get drawn into a doubles match of tennis â€“ street style! They soon find out that as a team, their selfish ways interfere with each otherâ€™s playing style, and they lose the match miserably.
Can these two star players ever learn how to get along and use their legendary skills to complement each other?
Story and art by Takeshi Konomi.
