Some hints from Weekly Shounen Jump
1. A manga special episode "Fu-un Shonen Atobe" will be animated in the OVA.
"Fu-un" episode was included in Prince of Tennis fanbook 40.5 and it's about an event happened when Atobe just entered to Hyoutei Junior High.
2. Ryoma "This Takoyaki is mada mada dane."
The members of Seigaku tennis club headed to Osaka. It's unknown what they're gonna do there. Takoyaki is a Japanese pancake ball with octopus inside. A popular food in Osaka.
3. Rikkai will also show up in the OVA.
