It's time to watch the Novak Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina live stream, and all eyes are on the Wimbledon 2021 winner as he looks almost impervious. But this time he's got more than just another Grand Slam title on the line: he's going for  the Golden Slam. With three Grand Slam titles under his belt, and a gold medal in his sights, Djokovic is a force of nature.

Standing in his way for tonight's Tokyo Olympics tennis match is Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, the World's No. 34-ranked men's tennis player. They've only met once before, and, well, Djokovic won that face-off, at the ATP Masters 1000 Rome earlier this year. 

Oh, and Djokovic won in straight sets as well, 6-2, 6-1. Will he repeat tonight at the Tokyo Olympics? Most would answer that query with a resounding "obviously!"

Djokovic hasn't lost in competition since May, against Rafael Nadal, and with Rafa out, we need to think about how often someone else has beaten Djokovic. Beyond Nadal (who beat him at the ATP Masters 1000 Rome), Aslan Karatsev was the last to beat Djokovic — in April of this year. 

Daniel Evans (at the ATP Masters 1000 Monte Carlo) was the only other opponent to beat Djokovic this year, which is how the Serbian ace got his nice and shiny 34-3 record for 2021. Hence why nobody's ready to bet against Djokovic this early in the Olympics.

Ready to go? Then here's everything you need to watch Novak Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina live streams:

How to watch the Novak Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina live stream from anywhere in the world

The Olympics is a global event and can be viewed in almost every country on Earth. However, if you're not in your home country and can't watch the Team USA vs Australia live streams with your usual services — or you want to watch in your native language — you're not out of luck. 

With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well.

We think speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. View Deal

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.

Primarily, you'll want the NBC Sports App or NBCOlympics.com to watch the Novak Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina live stream. 

The match is in the 10 p.m. ET block of Tennis coverage on the site and app, with the specific game time TBA. To stream the coverage, you'll need your cable or satellite account login info — and you can also log in with your Sling or Fubo account.

It may be included in roundup coverage on NBC and Peacock later, but that's not been announced. If you've cut the cable, you can find NBC and NBCSN and more in on the Sling TV Blue package. 

The Sports Extra package ($11 per month extra) gets you the Olympic channel. Sling is one of the best streaming services alongside our other recommendation for Olympics viewing: Fubo TV, which has 100+ channels (many more than Sling), including all of the above networks. 

Cheaper Live TV

Sling TV: You can get USA in the Sling Blue package, which is $35/month. The 30-plus channels in the lineup include AMC, CNN, Food Network, AMC, Comedy Central, HGTV and many more. Right now, Sling is offering $10 off the first month for new subscribers.View Deal

Fubo TV: If you love sports, you probably want to check out Fubo TV. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front. Fubo's dozens of channels include local networks like ABC and ESPN. You can also add on NBA TV. Fubo doesn't have TNT.View Deal

You'll want the new service Discovery+, which has the Djokovic vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina live stream as a part of the rights for full coverage of the Tokyo Olympics, breaking the BBC's previous monopoly. This year, the BBC is limited to no more than two live events at one time, whereas every single sport and every single event is available on Discovery+ or via the Eurosport channel.

Discovery is currently offering a three-day free trial of the service, with full subscriptions available for £6.99/month or £29.99/year after that. Plus, the service is available to stream through a multitude of devices include Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV and apps for iOS and Android.

Americans abroad could just use the service of their choice, provided they log in via a VPN such as ExpressVPN.

The best bet in Canada is likely one of the TSN channels. Sportsnet isn't highlighting tennis as one of its Tuesday evening events (it calls out volleyball, canoe sprint, athletics and baseball). It's possible that the match could be in the Sportsnet coverage, though.

More likely, though, is that it's on one of four TSN channels (TSN1, TSN2, TSN3 and TSN4), which all list Tokyo Olympics coverage from 7:55 p.m. until the end of the evening.

Again, Americans visiting their friends in the great white north could just use Peacock, provided they log in via a VPN such as ExpressVPN.
