Tokyo Olympic Event – Day 1 DOUBLES final results

Unlike many joint events, the Olympic event has doubles beginning on the very first day of the tournament.

It’s a tight window – eight days to get it done.

As well, many players who might not normally play doubles are teaming up for their country.

The only Canadian doubles entry (No. 7 seeds Gabriela Dabrowski and Sharon Fichman) unfortunately found their Olympic dream ending with a loss to an impressive Brazilian duo.
