With former world number one player Ash Barty retiring from tennis, Australia needs a new tour de force to conquer the world stage — and The Prince of Tennis II: U-17 World Cup has answered the call with a full team of new talent, who today made their debut with an introduction trailer, character designs and a cast member list.

 

 

The rank-18 team will have a lot to prove since the tournament is being hosted in Australia, and their competition is already showing their fighting spirit in a visual repost from the series’ official account that also reveals a July 6 premiere date.
