"Mixed Doubles" is the ninth episode of the third season of Magnum, P.I. which originally aired on December 2, 1982.

Plot Edit

Magnum is, once again, duped into free investigation work. This time, as a tennis player in a pro-am tournament, Higgins pairs him with a rising star instead of the veteran he had chemistry with years ago when he was serving in the US Navy with her brother. Magnum is tasked with protecting a young tennis pro who is being threatened.

Synopsis Edit

Magnum plays bodyguard to a young and bratty tennis star who is receiving death threats. The assignment reunites him with an old flame - who is also the prime suspect in the case.
