Kim Clijsters did not last long at the French Open. The Australian Open champ bowed out in the second round, losing to Arantxa Rus 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. Her 15-match Grand Slam win streak is over.

Clijsters is a two-time runner-up at the French Open, but it really isn't all that surprising that she wasn't able to advance very far at Roland Garros this year. After all, this is the first tournament she's played in since the Sony Ericsson Open back in late March.

Water under the bridge, one supposes. Wimbledon will be here in no time, and Clijsters needs to start preparing if she is to make it past the semifinals for the first time.

Meanwhile in the baseball world, the San Francisco Giants' quest for a World Series repeat has been dealt a huge blow. Buster Posey was injured in a collision at home plate late last night, and the word coming out today is that he is probably going to be out for the season.

In the racing world, speculation regarding the future of IndyCar/NASCAR driver Danica Patrick is swirling like never before. Her IndyCar contract expires at the end of this season, and many people think that will give her the perfect excuse to switch to NASCAR full time. And as it turns out, one very prominent driver is interested in joining forces with her.

It is yet another busy day in the world of sports. For all the latest news and notes, just keep it here and wait for updates.
