Tokyo Olympic tennis event set for week of July 27th

I was wondering about this because the Olympics always scramble the summer hardcourt season schedule, so i looked it up. Tokyo '020 is holding the tennis in the first week of the OG (the last week of July), so presumably it won't push Montreal to a couple of weeks earlier than usual as has happened in previous Olympic years. San Jose seems likely to take a hit though as they'll need to move it earlier by a week, and top players probably won't go there since the immediate travel to Japan would be too much. Washington has previously been held concurrently with the Olympics for players who didn't qualify for the OG, and perhaps it will be so again...

The ATP has the 2020 date out

Washington August 3 , Montreal August 10

So I am guessing San Jose will be the same week of Washington like this year

There'a an extra week between Wimbledon and the US Open in 2020. So no need for any tournaments to bunch up.
