Their relationship doesn't improve as Yuki refuses to teach Haruka, who has no tennis experience, stating he will do everything himself. Angered by this, Haruka starts taking tennis lessons from Miss Shamour, with Minami and Kirara soon helping with her training. After managing to improve considerably, Haruka comes to realise how serious Yuki takes tennis himself. On the day of the tournament, Haruka and Yuki's match is interrupted when Shut targets Yuki and creates a Tennis Zetsuborg. Understanding how hard Yuki is trying to accomplish his dream, Haruka manages to hold her own before the other Cures help her defeat the Zetsuborg. Having briefly seen Cure Flora after being rescued, Yuki has newfround respect for Haruka's dream, though is still prone to arguing with her.
