    I'm watching on BET365, tried looking for other streams but no luck.

    Tomic playing very well. Up 6-0 2-1. Moving and serving very well. Opponent is terrible though.

    Hard to believe Paul beat Pouille and Muller back to back last year.
    Had Match Points against Nishikori also.

    The young man has talent...a junior RG champ and USO finalist. He had a bad 2016 but bounced back last year.

    I think moving indoors may have thrown him tonight and Tomic probably has experience in this venue's conditions.

    Tomic is pretty out of form himself.
    Though I suppose Tomic's unusual playstyle might be throwing him off.

    Easy there...he has to finish this and win another match. His last 3-match win streak was TRS'16.

    Haha. His potential next round opponent (Safwat or Sonego) have still got to play their match. Might not get it done today and then may have to play two tomorrow. I rank Tomic's chances. Never heard of Sonego and Tomic has beaten Safwat before.

    Also what's TRS stand for?

    Ahh, I knew the answer was Cincy but was wondering what the TRS stood for :p

    Triple break points for Paul as Tomic serves for it..

    Very loose game by Tomic there and he gets broken to love (first time he was broken all match) and it's back on serve. Let's see if Tomic can break now and win the match.

    Paul wins 3 straight games and it's now 5-5.

    If Tomic blows this from 6-0 5-2....

    Tomic doesn't want this to go to 3. Paul is one of those players who look like they get more energy the longer they are on court while everyone else is tired.

    Say goodbye to that 5k. Can't imagine Tomic coming back after choking a 6-0 5-2 lead.

    Yeah. You have to grab full screen quickly. My ipad pro 10.5 with Safari was able to get to full screen as well. Chrome is a dud and my 2017 LG OLED with webios also has no chance to get to full screen. Really nice to have HD rather than the typical primitive feed.

    If you've got windows 10 box in the mix it will upconvert the sound to dolby atmos if you have dolby access app setup. Hard to believe how good fake Atmos sounds lol. I've got a wicked little Samsung 950 soundbar that is just stunning for tennis sound this way and real Atmos as well.

    Tomic blows 4 break points.

    If he doesn't break in this game he'll get broken in the next and lose the next game.

    The Tomic legs are looking as jello-y as the shots he will be ingesting later this evening.

    Tomic calls for the trainer.

    Made a mistake and says he meant the doctor.

    Now won't get the treatment before serving for it.

    Tomic exhausted. All Tommy needs to do is make him run.

    Tomic is finished.

    Tomic 2 points from the match, two points on his serve. So tense, so close.
