The endurance and performance of the players even caused former EPL stars Robbie Savage and Michael Owen to argue on Twitter. Savage started things off, saying: "When you watch these 2 play tennis it amazes me how modern day footballers complain of tiredness embarresing (sic) really!"
In Serbia, Djokovic's wife Jelena was watching the match with 10-week-old son Stefan.
She posted a photo of the baby watching his dad on television, captioning it with: "Everything looks so much better from this perspective. In Stefan's world daddy is always a winner!"

While Murray toiled, fiancee Kim Sears was winning admiration. She took the front pages of the papers in the wake of Murray's semi-final win, with her apparent foul-mouthed tirade during the match making the headlines.
She took the coverage in good spirits, though, and turned up to the final wearing a black t-shirt with the message 'Parental Advisory, Explicit Content' written on it.
"Andy may have lost the first set, but Kim Sears is a set up," said prolific tweeter and English football great Gary Lineker.
