Kyrgios was left laughing and shaking his head in disbelief as the umpire announced "game, set and match" with a 6-3 6-4 scoreline after a few moments of deliberation in the Australian Open warmup encounter.
Tomic, now ranked 83 in the world, breezed to a 6-3 6-4 victory over his 51st-ranked opponent, but they ended the encounter in farcical fashion, with Tomic sneakily serving between his legs and seeming to catch Kygrios by surprise for a clean ace.
Lining up for match point, Tomic was bouncing one ball when he flicked another ball between his legs.
"I don't think there has ever been a player like BT", Kyrgios told SBS after the match. "He won a title past year and it looks like he is carrying a bit of momentum".
"He can make a run at the Australian Open, for sure".

Kyrgios, who lost in the second round at the Brisbane International last week, had a break point early in the second but was unable to consolidate with Tomic then breaking at 3-3.
With his silky hands in superb touch, Tomic broke for a 3-1 lead and then steamed through the first set.
And Kyrgios was equally classy after the match as he paid tribute to Tomic, the former world number 17 who has clawed his way back up the rankings after falling as low as 243 in the ATP rankings.
Now ranked 85, Tomic finished the year in style with an ATP title in China. He added: "I know this Australian Open is going to be big as well. and I can do a lot better than I've done in the past".
I have never seen a serve like this.
Tomic hoped his form held up and managed to equal or better his three fourth round appearances, in 2016, 2015 and 2012. "My attitude to tennis is the same whether I won or lose", he said. "I learned a little bit more in Cincinnati, but today I knuckled down and really thought about it and really gave myself a chance".
