Tennis World

Former tennis players Chris Evert, Lindsay Davenport and Justin Gimelstob all played themselves on Wednesday’s episode of CSI.
In this episode called Double Fault (how original…), a rising tennis player is found dead after defeating her friend in the semifinals of a pro tournament.

Evert, Davenport and Gimmelstob are doing commentary, Davenport gets about 2 lines, Gimmelstob discovers the body and Evert is interrogated by Finn (played by Evert’s friend Elisabeth Shue).
There are also references to the Evert-Navratilova rivalry and the Monica Seles stabbing.

Overall, a pretty boring episode. Did you watch it?

The story

After learning his estranged father is ill, a broke young tennis coach sets out on the minor league circuit hoping to repair their relationship by winning the US Open. Journeying city to city with an eclectic mix of aspiring pros, sharing expenses and climbing the ranks, he competes against his most challenging opponent: a paralyzing sports anxiety manifested by his need to be great and to make his father proud.

About the project

“The Tour” is based on personal experiences and characters Jeremy Mitchell met on the Futures tour. Like many young tennis players Jeremy spent the better part of his youth dreaming of becoming a professional tennis player. Unfortunately, talent and drive are not always enough and Jeremy struggled to finance his dream. Jeremy believes that tennis is a great American sport but inaccessible to certain demographics and often has an elitist stereotype associated with it.
One of the major driving forces behind the vision of “The Tour” is to draw attention to the need for player development that creates greater access to the sport. It is the goal of the film to make an authentic movie about competitive tennis as it exists today, with the hope of inspiring a new generation of players and promoting greater access to the sport in the future. It is for this reason that “The Tour” is dedicated to making an authentic film that draws attention to the need for player development and the thrill of the sport.

One of the most striking early references to the game of tennis appears in a painting by Giambattista Tiepolo entitled The Death of Hyacinth (1752) in which a strung raquet and three tennis balls are depicted.

The Death of Hyacinth

According to tradition, the greek God Apollo, in a sporting competition with his lover, injured him fatally with a discus. A German ruler and connoisseur of fine art, Count Wilhelm Friedrich Schaumburg Lippe, commissioned an unusual rendering of the story from the Venetian artist Tiepolo.
The painting suggests that Apollo’s lover Hyacynth fell victim, not to a discus, but to a tennis ball.
