TOMMY PAUL got a smooth from his gorgeous girlfriend as he prepares for one of the toughest tasks in sport.
The unseeded American, 25, takes on Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open semi-final on Rod Laver Arena tomorrow.

Djokovic is on a 39-match, five-year winning streak in Australia.
He has put an apparent hamstring injury behind him to surge to the final four in Melbourne and looks odds-on to land a record-extending tenth Grand Slam Down Under.
But standing in his way next is Paul – who will be buoyed and full of confidence after getting a good-luck kiss from his beautiful Wag.
Paige Lorenze has taken the Australian Open by storm as she cheers on her man to his best major performance of his career – and even celebrated her birthday on the eve of Tommy’s biggest tennis match ever.
World No35 Paul beat college star Ben Shelton in their all-American quarter-final showdown.
And video footage behind the scenes at the Happy Slam showed Paige patiently waiting to congratulate her boyfriend.
The Instagram influencer and model, who boasts more than 400,000 Instagram followers, met Paul in the player gym after the clash and immediately wrapped her arms around him lovingly – then rewarded him with a special kiss.
And if that doesn’t work at motivation for Paul to go out and stun world No5 Djokovic on Friday, then what will?
Paul also received adulation from his coaching team before commiserating Shelton who warmed down on an exercise bike.
Lorenze loves skiing and owns her own clothing brand called Dairy Boy and appears much happier with Paul after previously dating Tyler Cameron, Morgan Wallen and disgraced actor Armie Hammer.
The vlogger has been keeping her fans updated with events in Melbourne – and her popularity is going through the roof as she cheers on the former junior French Open champion.
One imagines it will soar even further if Paul can add to his one career title in Stockholm in 2021 on Sunday.
