 ๐ŸŽพTennis: As excited as we were for the French Open to start, weโ€™re not as psyched five days in. Naomi Osaka dropped out, Venus Williams lost her first round match, and Venus and Coco Gauff lost their first-ever doubles match. On the bright side, Serena is still killing it. Sheโ€™ll play her third round match tomorrow.

๐ŸVolleyball: An Olympics without Kerri Walsh Jennings? The beach volleyball icon and three-time Olympic gold medalist, alongside partner Brooke Sweat, lost in the final qualifying tournament before next monthโ€™s Games in Tokyo. Say it ainโ€™t so.
