Maria Sharapova falls at Wimbledon, but she'll always have Paris
Sharapova, No. 1 in women's tennis and still buoyed by French Open triumph last month, is almost sanguine after fourth-round loss to Sabine Lisicki.

Big Three of men's tennis once again heavy favorites at French Open
Defending champion Rafael Nadal, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and third-seeded Roger Federer remain the players to beat. Although Serena Williams is motivated to win, the women's draw is less clear. Don't stop if you've heard this before because it's worth seeing in repeats.
