Love Means Nothing In Tennis was the sixth episode of the ninth series of New Tricks.


The death of a teenage tennis star occupies the team when it is suggested her suicide jump two years earlier was anything but. They soon find several people with motives for her murder, including her coach Nick and agent Anthony, but it seems the one with the most to benefit from the girl's demise was her great rival Fawn Brammall - a shy and subdued player who proves difficult to question. Meanwhile, Gerry wonders if he did enough to encourage his own daughter's sporting ambitions and Brian hatches a plan to turn his dog into a movie star.


  • Notably, Tamzin Outhwaite appears as Victoria Kemp in this episode. She would later return the following year in a different role, the lead role, as DCI Sasha Miller.
