Zeus Iliopoulos is a 1st year student from Greece. He is the captain of the Greek team and revered by his teammates as a God. He aims to create "The model of tennis".
Zeus has blond, curly hair and blue eyes. He is noticeably one of the shortest participants at the World Cup, and is also the shortest between the high schoolers. He is styled after the image of greek youth.
Zeus is calm and cheerful, yet he is also described as transcendental and imperturbable. He is not easily frustrated and prefers a genuine and fun way of playing tennis much more than winning. He is revered as a god, which he himself doesn't seem to mind, and values repentance for one's actions, to the point of sacrificing the Stephanopoulos brothers. He dislikes destructiveness and violence.

Zeus first appears observing the first match between Japan and Greece from the sidelines. Afterward, he's introduced as the captain of the Greek team, sending out the Stephanopoulos brothers. He plays Singles 3 against Tanegashima Shuji, and takes the lead by 5, but loses eventually after Tanegashima uses a bottlecap to make his play unpredictable to both sides. He later appears before the finals, cuddling a koala at the petting zoo.
- Hermes Kounellis
- It's stated that Hermes' meek personality makes him a good assistant to Zeus.
Zeus has a remarkable rainbow aura, noted by both Tanegashima and Shiraishi, which made the latter resign from his match. He can control the pace of the match extremely well, making it seem like he's losing rallies despite the opposite usually happening.
