History

2 Years prior to the Storyline

One of the matches were between Japan and France. Duke and Byodoin played each other in Singles 1. Prior to the actual match, Byodoin saved Chloe's life (Duke's younger sister). He suffered an injury to his back. This caused Byodoin to lose to Duke in the match. However, just as Byodoin was about to leave, Duke decides to leave the France U-17 and join the Japan U-17 to fight alongside his sister's saviour.

France beat Japan 3-2 in the end. The Japanese uniform back then was the white one that is now used for the 2nd stringers and MSers.

Trivia

  • Germany has won the last 9 U-17 World Cup in a row.
  • Australia being the host of the World Cup could be a tribute to Takeshi Konomi visiting Australia to watch the Australian Open.
  • This is the first time that professional tennis players will participate in the World Cup.
  • Two years ago, the U-17 World Cup was held in Paris, France.
  • The U-17 World Cup may be based on the real life Davis Cup:
    • The layout of the U-17 World Cup is the same as the Davis Cup. The first round is the round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals, and finals. The difference between the two is the locations. Australia is the sole location of the tournament while the Davis Cup is in different countries at each stage.
    • The Davis Cup also has something similar to the Group League called Group Playoffs.
  • Similar to the Grand Slams layout, matches are every two days.
