21 "Summit Showdown!" July 25, 2008

Three years ago, after finishing runner up to Yukimura Seiichi in the Japanese junior tournament, a new player named Tezuka Kunimitsu emerged, beating Sanada Genichiro 6-0, 6-1, only to go on and play evenly with Yukimura. Three years later, the rematch between Tezuka Kunimitsu and Genichiro Sanada. Just as Tezuka sealed doors one and two of the Muga no Kyochi, Sanada sealed the "Lightning" and "Shadow" until he faced Tezuka. Having no answer, Tezuka risked his future, and arm, with the Tezuka Phantom, reversing the spin and forcing the balls out instead of towards him. Tezuka's arm begins to feel the effects as well as Sanada's legs from constantly hitting the Lightning. Yukimura forces Sanada to change his strategy for the sake of three championships for Rikkaidai, using the Lightning and Forest techniques against the Phantom. Tezuka has no choice but to hit the Phantom, wearing his arm out until Sanada gains match point. With one final lightning, instead of phantoming it, Tezuka used the Tezuka Zone to bring it towards him. It blew the raquet out of his hand, but the ball flew high into the air and landed on the net cord, teetering on the edge. With everyone watching, Sanada screamed for it to fall on Tezuka's side, which it did, resulting in Rikkaidai's win. Sanada shook hands with Tezuka, saying he'll never play him again.
