It’s finally here.

And if the men’s tournament isn’t at the level we’d all love (The No. 16 seed, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, is ranked only No. 35 on the ATP Tour), the stakes are tremendous.

The women’s participation rate is a little better, and there are some great first-round matches in both draws.

Canada’s Leylah Fernandez wins going away against top-40 player Dayana Yastremska, to get her first Olympics off to a great start.
