Description

A tennis prodigy leads his handsome tennis club to victory at the national tournament.

Four-time consecutive U.S. Junior tournament champ Ryoma Echizen comes to Seishun Academy to further his reign as The Prince of Tennis. His skill is matched only by his attitude--irking some but impressing all as he leads his team to the Nationals and beyond!

The much-anticipated match between Seishun Academy 's Ryoma Echizen and St. Rudolph's Yuta is underway, and neither of them is giving in to each other's intimidation techniques. Upon orders from Hajime, St. Rudolph's cunning team manager, Yuta must aim for Ryoma's left eye, which was accidentally injured during his previous match. Battling all odds to secure his team's victory--as well as his own on-court safety--can Ryoma formulate a strategy to tame Yuta's killer twist spin shot? And is Yuta really that evil?
