    Background: VISNEWS was at the exclusive Tokyo Lawn Tennis Club Dec 6, when Crown Prince Akihito of Japan and his fiancee, Miss Michiko Shoda, daughter of a Japanese industrialist millionaire partnered each other at Lawn Tennis for the first time -- and won.

    On arrival at the club they were greeted by large posters congratulating them on their engagement (Announced Nov 27) and presented with a cake decorated with both their names.

    Tennis has played a large part in the romance of the couple. They met, on opposite sides of the net, at Karuizawa, Japan last year. Michiko, partnered by a thirteen year old American boy, beat the Crown Prince and his partner.
