Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the locker room assault on a rising young tennis star, Korey Burke. Her wrist was broken and it likely spells the end of her career as a pro tennis player. At first they suspect a rival, Allison Hall but then focus on the girl's father who they think might have wanted to find a way for Korey to keep her sponsorship contracts without actually having to play - and perhaps lose. The case seems to come full circle again when evidence points to Allison's boyfriend as the culprit. The solution lies elsewhere however. Written by garykmcd

Ripped From The Headlines!
22 November 2010 | by (Deming, New Mexico, USA) – See all my reviews

In January, 1994, figure skater Tonya Harding hired one or two goons to kneecap her chief rival, Nancy Kerrigan. In May of that year, this episode appeared, in which a budding tennis star hires a good to break her wrist in order for her to get out of professional tennis without losing any money or any of her father's love.

The "ripped from the headlines" episodes don't always follow the historical script too closely. This one certainly doesn't. But they hew closely enough to the original scenario that the signals are clearly received by the viewers.

As usual, this one is pretty well done. John Heard is the name guest star.
