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."
