The Perfect Match ("ア·ウンな二人", A Un na Futari) is the twelfth episode of the series and the second in the Tokyo District Preliminary arc.
The first match of the tournament is Doubles Two; Momoshiro and Ryoma. They end up facing exactly who they wanted to - the two players that beat them in the street courts. At first, Ryoma and Momoshiro do fairly well, as they've come up with a technique to conquer the middle of the court. However, they soon are confronted with the fact that doubles is about synchronization and start to get aggravated when the other makes a mistake. They continuously make the mistake of leaving the other side empty, and although extremely strong players, it looks like Momoshiro and Ryoma might just lose this doubles match.
