    Default Ending of PoT

    Post your theories about how the series will end here. Here are some of mine, and estimating the percent of them happening.

    -Ryoma achieves PoP and beats Yukimura, taking Seigaku to the top, with it ending there. (30%)

    -After the Nationals, Ryoma plays against Nanjiroh and wins. (40%)

    -After the Nationals, There is a 10 year jump showing Echizen playing against Sanada in the U.S Open finals, after Sanada beats Roger Federer. Ends there. (50%)

    Hahaha, you're amazing.

    In any case, I'm with your second theory, as predictable as that is. I think we'll also see what happened to people after a time jump, and that at least Ryoma, Tezuka, Atobe, Sanada and Yukimura will become pros.

    My reasons for choosing Sanada are not because he is my favorite character. The fact Sanada is based on the Japanese war hero "Sanada Yukimura", and that being backed up by Sanada's techniques being war tactics, shows that Konomi wants Sanada to be the strongest rival to the main character. In a series with a character based on a real person, it is usually an antagonist that is the rival to the fictional protagonist. An example of this is Hajime Saito in Rurouni Kenshin.

    Because Sanada is in this position as a character, and how he lost to the main character without going all out, shows that a rematch is going to happen. Being that the finals are already in session in the National Tournament, and Sanada is not facing Echizen, a rematch will happen after the Nationals. I think the ending to the manga will be similar to the anime. Only except for Echizen beating Lleyton Hewitt, He will face Sanada in a rematch for the U.S Open. The reason why I said Sanada beats Roger Federer, is to show how much Sanada improved, to compare to the main character Echizen. Since the story is essentially about his growth.

    Then what could happen is after Echizen beats or possibly ties with Sanada, he goes against his father which the series will end.

    0.0 Sanada vs. Federer... now that will be the day XD

    well i say that ryoma going all PoP and beatng Yukimura is a given. he's like a mary sue, never gets beaten in official matches.

    i think that maybe there will be a 10 year time skip or so to show what some of the characters are doing. not sure about the rematch thing... im don't think konomi will do something like that. of course i wouldn't mind, its just that i would want a peaceful ending with 'i guess ryoma is the prince of tennis' kind of mindset.

    Maybe I'm being too simplistic, but I think that the strongest rivals Ryoma will face will be Yukimura and Nanjirou.

    Though I guess time will tell, huh?

    That said, unless Yukimura actually shows some personality, Sanada would be a much better "last" rival...

    federer beaten?? well, could happen. Especially with younger people aiming for top.

    anyways, one being the highest probability(for me):
    1. tezuka gives ryoma the captain position of seigaku...basically the graduation day. Hopefully ryoma would have beaten nanjirou before that...
    2. seigaku beats the nationals. end of story...
    3. this is another possibility I was thinking about....Rikkai winning against seigaku...with yukimura saying to ryoma, "you're not ready yet" or something...
    4. an epilogue of how all the tennis teams ended up after a year or the Nationals.

    I hope they don't show the U.S. Open. Because if freakin' Junior High Kids can pull DBZ-esque moves already, the pros probably can't play without exploding the planet -_-;

    Sanada's personality is made to have that "Rival feel", and Konomi does a good job of creating that. The personality and the fact Sanada is based on "The strongest warrior in Japan" are the reasons why he is my favorite character.

    I don't know about the strongest warrior in Japan...admittedly this kinda stuff's not my area of expertise but I always got the impression that Sanada Yukimura was a great warrior who bravely won many battles but eventually was overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of his enemy. I'm sure there are others that are considered better.

    But honestly, Sanada fails as a rival for Echizen anyway because he simply doesn't care about him. He's always had Tezuka as his goal, so suddenly switching to Ryoma wouldn't really give a great feel to the rivalry.

    Hence why Sanada beating Tezuka was calculated in my theory.

    And Sanada Nobushige/Yukimura was indeed known by many as "Strongest warrior in Japan". Wiki it.
