Tomic Sr sat in the second row during the match after being allowed by officials to attend as a spectator, despite the suspension of his ATP tour credentials following an assault charge.
A clearly-flustered Tomic Jr attempted post-match to play down the impact of having his dad and coach court-side again, after he was barred from attending the French Open in any capacity.
"I wasn't really looking. Wasn't really something I was focusing on," the world No.63 said.
The 20-year-old also revealed several changes to his coaching and support staff, saying he'd brought in Eugenio Forchione, Ivan Dimitrijevic and Harry Skinner, but his father clearly remains in charge.
At least nominally there is a new coach. It seems there is some message in Tomic saying he did not notice his dad, despite that being almost impossible. Maybe just to stop people bugging him with the question. Has any heard of Eugenio Forchione who is put forward as a coach now?
