I just reread the Tachibana/Chitose section and realized that Chitose said he can't see properly out of his right eye so Tachibana hit all his balls to his RIGHT so it wouldn't be in his blind spot.
If you close your right eye, your blind spot is to your right. Am I missing something here? Chitose certainly spent the match hitting nothing but backhands.
And, yep, I'm being OCD about this!
