When Elisabeth Shue joined CSI last year, she had one request.

"[Producers] asked me if there were any ideas I had or anything I'd like to do that would be fun, and I said, 'We should do a murder at a tennis tournament and we'll get professional players to come on.' I was half-joking, but I did really want to do it and I didn't necessarily think they would do it," Shue, a diehard tennis (and Roger Federer) fan and avid player, tells TVGuide.com.

From the Williams sisters and their bold fashion choices to Andy Roddick and his fierce backhand, there is nothing better than a filled Arthur Ashe stadium and the back and forth of focused athletes battling it out for that grand slam title. Just last night, we watch Maria Sharapova cut her competition out of the running in less than an hour, while Justin Gimmelstob gracefully bowed out after Roddick topped his game — Gimmelstob playing his last singles Open match.
