                The OTSA was developed as a collaborative effort between the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and the Shoulder Center of KY at the Lexington Clinic to create a tool for effective analysis of the serve motion that could be used easily on court and would suggest interventions that could improve serve mechanics and modify risk of injury.  It is based on current knowledge of the mechanics of optimum force production that has been produced through basic science investigation.  It has been used extensively for evaluation of professional tennis players and has also been used for evaluation of active and competitive nonprofessional players.  The analysis uses direct observation or video evaluation of the serve from a specific position behind and to the side of the players as they hit a series of 4- 8 serves.  The aims of the OTSA are to produce a rating score that provides an overall view of the entire serve motion, highlights certain areas of the serve motion that are performed well or may be deficient, and suggests areas that can be highlighted for improvement, either by improving strength or flexibility, or by improving the serve technique.   Scores have been correlated with best performance of the serve such as professional ranking, high NTRP rating, highest percentage of aces, and lowest percentage of double faults.
