    Tennis players make such good cold blooded, upper crust murderers.

    Looking forward to seeing this tonight. I know that John McEnroe guest-starred on CSI New York once and did a good job.

    Is CSI too terrible to watch or is it worth checking out, at least for the tennis talent?

    It will be my first and probably only episode.

    TW posters are expected to view it seriously and post their comments here.

    What can they possibly be doing on CSI that's tennis related? Oh wait, a spanish player dopes and kills some people who are in on the secret. Gimelstob and Chrissie are hired by his rival to investigate. :)

    Gimelstob? I'm surprised, he doesn't strike me as the "in the spotlight" type.

    ???? The major networks don't air a show at the same time throughout the entire country. If CBS airs it at 10 pm Eastern Standard Time for the East Coast, then they air it again at 10 pm Pacific Standard Time for the West Coast viewers. And the time difference is backwards: if it's 10 pm on the West Coast, then it's 1 am the next morning on the East Coast (if you're watching live sports).

    On a different note, since CSI is set in Las Vegas, why couldn't they get Agassi?

    I realized it after I posted it. I am too oriented to live broadcasts at the moment.

    Sharapova - Li Na on at the same time. I think I'm watching AO instead.

    Spoiler - the racquet was the murder weapon! Watch your temper boys;<)

    My love Masha was getting rolled so I flicked over for a while. It was actually a somewhat entertaining episode with the "oh so predictable" CSI ending that always happens. :razz:

    Wish the players in our "Best Legs" postings are ALL as hot as the two in the show -- without 24" or below waists, what good are the "best legs"? :)

    BTW, getting tired of all those serial killers or civilian murder shows...

    This episode would be much more fun say if... it's in "NCIS" or in "Homeland" about the murder of a tennis pro who's a Marine wife with a mid-east origin who's forced to infiltrate US to plan bombing the main stadium in US Open Final, but then refused to follow-thru and ended up murdered by the terrorist here to cover it up etc... :)

    Used to not be the case. Show went way downhill after William Petersen left.

    I would have liked to have seen more dialogue from Gimelstob and Davenport. Chrissie E looks great, but she needs a haircut. I agree with jesses469-William Peterson should have stayed on the show. I liked Lawrence Fishburn's character as well.

    lol, I bet it was killing Elizabeth to get that last line out at the end of the show. "Life happened."..... "Ya, I'm glad too." For some reason, we all know she'd rather be playing than acting but you gotta pay the bills.

    She was the first one on the court last year at the USO kids day and the last one off. She's a big tennis fan and I read an article a couple of years ago that she wanted to train and make the pro circuit so hard that she just wanted to have a single ranking point and she'd have been happy.

    Anyway, I thought the beginning of the show was pretty funny. 120MPH second serve from a girl pro? Ya, ok. :lol:

    NCIS or NCIS L.A. do that routinely... though there's a lot of 2-episode series :)
