Ryoma Echizen just joined the Seishun Academy's tennis team, which is known for being one of the most competitive teams in Japan. While most of the freshmen are on pins and needles hoping they won't get cut from the team, Ryoma Echizen is confident, cool, and collected. Some might even say he's cocky, but at least he's got the skills to back up his attitude. With his virtually unreturnable "twist serve," Ryoma is sure to make the starting team.
The Kanto Tournament reaches its electrifying conclusion!
All eyes are riveted on center court, where Ryoma and Genichiro Sanada are locked in a furious contest of strength, skill and willpower. Will Ryoma find a way to contain the tremendous power of Genichiro's "Hurin Kazan" shot? Or will Genichiro lead Rikkai to yet another victory?
