This book is about Ryoma join seigaku. Seigaku is a famous tennis club. The players in there is(KikumaroEiji,Oishi,Inui,Kiado,Fuji,Kawamura Takashi,Tezuka,Ryoma,Momo). Tezuka is the captain. They play different schools to beat them.Seigaku never lose when they play against a school. Ryoma had some tough opponents but in the end Ryoma still wins. Seigaku is the best team.That's what i think.
