The Williams' sisters prefer French fries to the French Open, The Answer tries to solve the puzzle of the Lakers and the Devils try to dig their way out of a Stanley Cup Avalanche.

The Williams' sisters run into problems in France and the 76ers prepare for The Showtime. Here's a look at the latest from the 2001 French Open, the NBA Playoffs, the Stanley Cup Finals and more.

1The French Open was not kind to the Williams' sisters in 2001. Venus was knocked out in the first round by Barbara Schett of Austria while Serena was defeated in the quarter-finals by Jennifer Capriati. Serena also appears to be finding "love" off the court. She's rumored to be dating Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington. On the men's side, Andre Agassi made it to the semi-finals but blew it.

1The New Jersey Devils are just one game away from winning their second straight Stanley Cup. New Jersey leads the Colorado Avalanche 3 - 2 in the best of seven series. The Devils are winning without some of their top players. Jason Arnott is out after being hit in the head with a puck and Randy McKay still has a broken hand.

1The NBA Finals tip off on June 6th. Kobe, Shaq and the rest of the Lakers are huge favorites to beat the Philadelphia 76ers. The Showtime Lakers have won 19 games in a row and look unbeatable. Allen Iverson will not be The Answer this time around.

1Barry Bonds continues to beat up on pitchers around the National League. Bonds hit his 30th homerun on June 5, 2001 in just his 57th game - a new record.

1At the Women's US Open, 13 year-old Morgan Pressel missed the cut but still played two pretty good rounds of golf. Morgan broke 80 on both days and got to miss two afternoons of classes. Karrie Webb, of Australia, won The Open with an eight shot victory.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!
