MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

ROLAND GARROS – First up – and no doubt about it – a 5 a.m. EDT wakeup call for Bianca Andreescu.

She faced qualifier Ysaline Bonaventure of Belgium. And despite a long rain delay in the third set, came within a few points of losing before she pulled it out.

Also: Anisimova vs. Osaka. Which went to Anisimova in not much of a surprise.

And Iga Swiatek, who rolled. And Emma Raducanu, who made her Roland Garros debut against a player who is … younger than she and impressively withstood a solid challenge to come out on top.
