Paul broke into the Top 200 for the first time in March 2016 when he qualified for the Miami Masters.

In the first part of 2017, he competed in Challengers and ITFs. In July 2017, he upset seventh seed and 53rd-ranked Chung Hyeon in three sets at the Atlanta Open after qualifying.
He subsequently defeated Malek Jaziri in three sets to get to his first quarterfinal on the ATP circuit.
Gilles Müller, the third seed, then beat him. Tommy was handed a wildcard into the ATP 500 Washington Open due to his performance in Atlanta.
Paul advanced to the second round after defeating Casper Ruud. He next faced Lucas Pouille, whom he defeated in straight sets for his best career triumph.
He met Gilles Müller again in the following round but won in three sets to reach his first ATP 500 quarterfinal. He was defeated in three sets by Kei Nishikori.
Paul entered the top 100 for the first time in his career in September 2019, after winning his second ATP Challenger championship in New Haven, after his victory in Sarasota earlier in the season.
At the 2020 Australian Open, Paul advanced to the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career, defeating 18th seed Grigor Dimitrov in the second round before losing to Marton Fucsovics.

He reached his first ATP final at the 2021 Stockholm Open, beating Andy Murray in the quarterfinals and Frances Tiafoe in the semifinals.
