Yukimura Seiichi (幸村精市(ゆきむらせいいち)) is a 3rd year student at Rikkai. Yukimura is a national-level tennis player, winning in the national tournament ever since his first year in Rikkai. Nicknamed "The Child of God", he is respected as one of the strongest tennis players in the junior high school circuit, if not the strongest, and is considered the final boss in the original Prince of Tennis manga.


Since his childhood, Yukimura has sported navy blue waves that almost reach his shoulders and a hairband to keep his hair in place, both during practice and during matches. He is always shown with a jacket draped over his shoulders, and he prides on never having it fall off his shoulders while playing a tennis match.

Yukimura's eye color is brown in the manga, and purple/blue in the anime. His headband color also differs in the anime and the manga, being green and white respectively.



Prior to the events of the main story

Yukimura has been a Rikkai regular since his first year in middle school, along with Sanada Genichirou and Yanagi Renji, forming what is known to be Rikkai's Big Three (sometimes referred to as Troika). Together, they led Rikkai to victory for two years straight, passionately aiming for a third consecutive win in the manga as third year students.

On their second year, Yukimura and Sanada became captain and vice-captain of Rikkai's tennis club respectively.


On the winter of his second year, Yukimura collapsed at a train station. He suffers from an illness similar to Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which slowly paralyzes the body. He overhears the doctors saying that he will never be able to play tennis again.



In the final match of the original manga, Yukimura lost to Echizen, 6-4.

At the camp, players were asked to pair up, and later on were made to play a match in order to decide which players will stay at the camp. Yukimura paired up with Sanada and won. Won against (high schooler).

At a match against Germany in the pre-World Cup, Yukimura played doubles with Tokugawa Kazuya against Volk and Frankensteiner, and lost.

Yukimura and Sanada played doubles against Australia in the World Cup, and won 7-5.

Anime only arcs

In the anime, Yukimura was first shown when Sanada visited him in the hospital, where kids were shown playing with him. They went to the rooftop, and Yukimura revealed to Sanada that his surgery has only a 50-50 chance of success. He also made frequent appearances in Sanada's flashbacks during Sanada VS Echizen. In the manga, the rest of Rikkai were not able to go to the hospital in time for Yukimura's surgery. In the anime, however, Sanada asked them to go to Yukimura before his match started.

In the chibi filler episodes, Yukimura was often shown to be sickly. He would often collapse and Sanada would scream "YUKIMURAAAA!!". He was also shown in the background of Kirihara's flashbacks of the beach, where he and Sanada are implied to be Kirihara's parents.

Sanada Genichirou
Apart from being Yukimura's vice-captain, Sanada is his childhood friend and his first doubles partner. He is part of Rikkai's "Big 3" alongside Yukimura and Yanagi. Sanada is shown to be somewhat fearful of Yukimura, but holds immense respect for him.
Yanagi Renji
Yanagi is one of Rikkai's "Big 3" alongside Yukimura and Sanada. The two are close friends, as Yanagi is on a first-name basis with Yukimura.
Tokugawa Kazuya
Yukimura's tennis resonates with Tokugawa's. He is also one of the people that helps train Yukimura in order to defeat Tezuka Kunimitsu by further honing his skills to defeat a left-handed player more easily.
Mouri Jusaburou
Yukimura is initially shown to resent Mouri for his laid-back attitude and habit of skipping tennis practice. This resentment was further exacerbated when Yukimura was hospitalized and unable to play tennis, but he was able to watch Mouri throw away all of his talent even though he could practice as much as he wanted. When Mouri saw Yukimura in the hospital, struggling through his rehabilitation, it inspired him to reevaluate himself and his approach to tennis. Mouri is also Yukimura's mysterious "Sports Drink Fairy", who secretly left him a cold sports drink bottle for him to find after his rehabilitation sessions. After his identity is revealed, Yukimura is shown to have forgiven Mouri, calling him "Drink Fairy Senpai".



Yukimura is an all-rounder who can return virtually any shot. By returning balls precisely no matter what technique is used, fear creeps into the opponent's heart, causing them to lose their confidence and slowly fall into a state of yips.
