3. See what we mean?

4. Genie Bouchard enjoys a superstar moment on the Champs Élysées.

5. Tennis Channel’s Steve Flink says what all of us have been thinking about Angelique Kerber’s struggles this season.

6. In tennis, we care about each other… Nice sportsmanship shown here by Aliaksandra Sasnovich, who comes to the aid of a cramping Viktorija Golubic after a tough moment.

7. Dominika Cibulkova wears a necklace to commemorate her Singapore moment. Did not know that.

8. Grigor Dimitrov snaps a four-match losing streak in Paris, and the prevailing sentiment is relief—peppered with giddiness.

9. Pigeons make their presence felt during a first-round match between Steve Johnson and Yuichi Sugita on Day 1.

10. A semifinalist last year at Roland Garros, Dominic Thiem might have put forth the days’ best performance. He crushed Bernard Tomic, losing just six games.

11. (Because this one goes to 11) Speaking of Thiem, here’s the best point of Day 1, in case you missed it.
