PersonalityEdit

HistoryEdit

Tokyo DistrictsEdit

Kamio and Fudomine cruise through the district preliminaries surprising other schools and reach the final where they meet Seigaku. After Sakurai and Ishida won Doubles 2 due to Kawamura Takashi injuring his wrist and Fuji forfeiting their match for Kawamura's safety.

Tokyo PrefecturalsEdit

Despite the setback Fudomine suffered from losing at the Districts against Seigaku, they managed to sail through the Prefecturals easily, being able to take down the 1st seeded teem Hyōtei Academy (due to the team not using its real regulars at the time) in a straight set, with Sakurai partnered up with Ishida Tetsu and winning his match at Doubles 2 with a score of 6-4. However, during the day of the Semifinals, after getting help from his fellow teammates Shinji Ibu and Akira Kamio perfect his new combination techniques with the fellow teammate Ishida Tetsu, their taxi gets into an accident and all four of them become critically injured. Despite this, they still show up for their match against Yamabuki Middle School, where they suffer a horrible loss due to their injured condition and Tachibana withdraws them to take them to the hospital.

Kantō RegionalsEdit

Despite the humiliating defeat at the Prefecturals, Sakurai and Fudomine cruises through the 1st round and takes down Itoguruma with ease and they get to have a rematch against Yamabuki.

NationalsEdit

Sakurai and Fudomine went to the Nationals and powered their way through the first round and met last years runner-up Makinofuji in Round 2. Fudomine cruise to the Quarterfinals after crushing Makinofuji in the 2nd Round who were last years finalists.

Tennis RecordEdit

Playing Style and TechniquesEdit

Sakurai is Fudomine Middle School's doubles specialist. He has very keen insight and judgment, which has proven to be quite invaluable during matches. He is able to hit heavy topspin shots that can pressure high-level opponents like Fuji Shusuke (for a short period of time). In the anime, his serve is shown to be fast enough to get a Service Ace on Fuji or Kawamura at times, although this could've been due to his condition being better by being under more pressure.
