When and where to watch?

The Canadian Open quarterfinal round clash between Carlos Alcaraz and Tommy Paul will be live streamed in India on SonyLiv from 4:30AM IST on August 12.

Alcaraz, the 20-year-old Spaniard, comes into the quarterfinal after beating 15th-seeded Pole Hubert Hurkacz 3-6, 7-6(2), 7-6(3) in a tough round of 16 match. He let a 5-2 lead slip in the third set but managed to close it in the tiebreak, finally converting his fifth match point. The top seed, who got a bye in the first round, had earlier defeated American Ben Shelton 6-3, 7-6(3) in the second round.

This is Alcaraz’ first tournament on hard court since his loss against Jannik Sinner in the semifinals of the Miami Open. Since then, he has won titles in Barcelona, Madrid, Queen’s and most recently, Wimbledon, while also reaching the French Open semifinals. The Spaniard, who will be defending his US Open title this year, is on a 14-match winning streak.

USA’s Paul, seeded 12th, began his campaign in Toronto with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 victory over Diego Schwartzman before defeating Francisco Cerundolo 7-6(2), 6-7(2), 6-3 in the second round. He had a comparatively easier outing in the round of 16, beating compatriot Marcos Giron 6-3, 6-2. The 26-year-old American is looking to reach the semifinals of a Masters event for the first time in his career.
