Justin Gimelstob, Chris Evert, Lindsay Davenport, Elisabeth Shue
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. "Cut to the beginning of this season and they say, 'Oh, that tennis episode is really coming along.' 'What?!' I was just shocked, but so, so excited."

Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams
Fresh off equaling Bjorn Borg's six French Open titles, Rafael Nadal could match another of the Swede's impressive feats: winning on the French clay and Wimbledon grass back-to-back for the third time. "It's the toughest turnaround in tennis," says NBC analyst Mary Carillo, "but Nadal is something very special indeed." Borg did it from 1978-80, and the Spaniard took home both trophies in 2008 and last year...

The Bachelorette, Glee
There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse. (See: this week's episodes of Breaking Bad and Glee.) Force them into the open, which can get emotional (Losing it with Jillian). Or just hit someone (Royal Pains).

See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition.
John McEnroe is being serious when he says he thinks someone not named Roger Federer will hoist the 2009 U.S. Open trophy. The seven-time Grand Slam winner, who will call the tournament for ESPN2, is looking to a pair of Andys — Roddick and Murray — to dethrone the five-time defending champion.
