I was also insulted in behalf of Atobe when Tezuka chose to be in S2. I mean it'll be a boring match since we know who'd win but still... that was a blow in Atobe's ego!
Anyway Hyotei match-ups were ridiculous, but I think it was at least a bit reasonable when it came to Shitenhouji. Tezuka was in doubles sure, but it was just Konomi teasing us. The eventual lineup (i.e., chitose playing) was still heavenly.
So here's to hoping that matches against Rikkai will be saner. No, perfectly reasonable. Or maybe destined to be.
