BackgroundEdit

Yoshirō Akazawa (赤澤吉朗, Akazawa Yoshirō) is known to be a powerful and talented singles player. Despite being St.Rudolph's team captain, he does not exert a lot of influence and he usually leave the decision making skills to the team's manager, Hajime Mizuki.

AppearanceEdit

Akazawa's most defining characteristic would have to be his dark skin. He has brown hair and brown eyes. He has quite the presense, as expected of a captain, which may seem more emphasized by the presense of his doubles partner, Kaneda.

PersonalityEdit

Despite his position as captain, he is never shown to truly exert that influence (although in Houkago no Ojisama, it was shown that Akazawa indirectly controls Mizuki through positive and passive reinforcement, playing on Mizuki's ego without Akazawa himself realizing it). He was noted to have quite the temper and was unable to properly cooperate with Kaneda due to his stubbornness as a singles player, although he can easily regain his cool with a single yell, which gets his temper out of his system. However, he is quite the athlete, since his skills as a singles player was praised by members of Seigaku, and despite his inexperience in doubles, he was able to work together with Kaneda once he fully comprehends the difference between singles and doubles.

Akazawa is well-respected amongst his teammates, as Mizuki had put his full trust in him in Doubles 1 despite Akazawa's lack of experience in Doubles and Kaneda was always chasing after his back and improving himself as a result. Even Mizuki was worried about what he would tell Akazawa in the anime when none of the St. Rudolph members made it to the Junior Senbatsu team. Unlike Mizuki, who is rather rude to anyone who loses, Akazawa encourages his teammates and gives credit to his team members when it's due.

HistoryEdit

One Year Prior To The StorylineEdit

Akazawa defeated a Seigaku regular during the Prefecturals at this time.

PrefecturalsEdit

During the Prefectural Tournament he played doubles with his kōhai, Kaneda Ichirō and eventually won the game against Seishun Academy's Golden Pair.

Tennis RecordEdit

Playing Style and TechniquesEdit

Akazawa is an All-Rounder and a skilled offensive player. During Akazawa's match against the Golden Pair, he was shown to perform various aggressive shots and jumping smashes throughout the match, to the point that even without Kaneda's influence, he was able to pressure the Golden Pair long enough to tire Eiji out. He was noted to have defeated a Seigaku Regular (who graduated the previous year) during the last year St. Rudolph played against Seigaku. However, he has no experience in doubles, although he seems to have improved upon his doubles gameplay when he partnered up with Kaneda against Seigaku, showing good cooperation with his fellow junior.


Blur Ball

Akazawa has a habit of hitting his backhand at the top of his racquet gut rather than the sweet spot. By doing this, he is able to create a small vibration in the ball, and for players with excellent Motion Vision, it appears as if the ball is returning in multiple directions. This can cause people with Motion Vision to strain their eyes if they're exposed to this for too long. This, however, has no (presumable) effect on players with standard eyesight towards moving objects.
