Mini-Bio The man responsible for re-establishing Seigaku as a major player in the bid for the National title is the renowned 14-year-old Tezuka. However, the road at Seigaku has not always been as kind to Tezuka. During his first year at Seigaku, a senpai slammed a racket to his left elbow. Pain flared up a year later, forcing Tezuka to turn down an invitation to the Jr. Senbatsu Training Camp. Earlier this year, he was given a clean bill of health. Unfortunately, while playing against Atobe Keigo, Tezuka injured his shoulder and surrendered his once perfect record. Afterward, Tezuka temporarily relocated to Miyazaki, Kyuushuu for treatment at the Seishun University Hospital. A recovered Tezuka most recently returned to Tokyo, just in time for the Nationals. After graduating from middle school, Tezuka intends to pass the Seigaku torch to Echizen Ryoma and leave for Germany for the purpose of becoming a professional tennis player.
Technique Zeroshiki Drop Shot - A drop shot in which the ball rolls away from the returner after landing.
Tezuka Zone - All returns are drawn back to Tezuka. This is one technique that Muga no Kyouchi can't copy.
Hyaku Ren Jitoku no Kiwami - One of Muga no Kyouchi's 3 doors. It spares the user the fatigue that results from using Muga no Kyouchi and allows the user to return shots with twice the power and spin. A requisite for this technique is the Tezuka Zone. For unknown reasons, it was sealed off for 3 years.
Saikikanpatsu no Kiwami - One of Muga no Kyouchi's 3 doors and a singles-only technique. The user gains the ability to foresee the outcome of a point.
Zeroshiki Serve - A serve in which the ball rolls away from the returner after landing.
Tezuka Phantom - All returns go out of bounds.
