Murray, an expectant father himself whose own child is due in February, beat World No 1 Djokovic 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 to earn his fourth title of the season after losing his last eight matches to the Serb dating back more than two years.
The Scotsman, unique among top players in being coached by a woman, said he has seen a picture of his French mentor's baby. "I don't know much detail because we just saw a picture of her and the baby this morning when we got up," said Murray.
"I haven't spoken to her or anything since then. I'd imagine she's quite tired. Probably me and my tennis are the last thing on her mind just now, which is totally understandable.
But I am glad she's OK and everything went well." Murrray said that any decision Mauresmo might take on her coaching future will remain open through 2015 and possibly beyond. "It doesn't change anything through the end of this year because we've had six months since we found out to plan and talk about things."
