Who will take home the title?
Plenty of other players have gotten underway, however, and even a few have already advanced to the second round. Let's take a look at the early results.

Jeremy Chardy defeats Donald Young (3-6, 7-6, 6-0)
It's been a while since the former No. 1 amateur has won a match, and that disappointing streak continued on Monday for Donald Young.
The lefty American, playing in just his second hard-court tournament since the Sony Ericsson Open back in March, fell in three sets to Jeremy Chardy, the World No. 47.
After winning the first set, Young lost to Chardy in the second-set tiebreak before completely falling apart. In the match's final set, the American failed to even win a game, as he was broken all three times.
It was yet another ugly defeat for Young, who continues to free-fall in the rankings, but it was a nice come-from-behind victory for Chardy, who is looking to advance to the third round on a hard surface for the first time this year (he won the Noumea Challenger in January).
In order to do that, the Frenchman will have to find a way past countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the second round.
Viktor Troicki defeats Alex Bogomolov, Jr. (6-4, 7-6)
When you are able to rack up 16 aces to your opponent's zero, that's usually a sign that you will have a good chance of winning in straight sets, and that was the case in this one.
Bogomolov knocked off Troicki in straight sets back at the beginning of the year in Sydney, but the Serbian got his revenge in this one.
Not only did the 33rd-ranked player in the world dominate on serve, he did a good job returning the Russian's first serve (36 percent of the points won) and broke him four times.
It was an impressive win for Troicki, but now he has to face the young, talented Canadian, Milos Raonic. It will be the first ever meeting between the two.
