His longterm girlfriend Jelena Ristic was looking on cheerfully (and at times nervously) as Djokovic, who suffered a lower back injury during the 4-set match, made an enthralling comeback.
Don't Miss:

After winning against a gassed-out Nadal, Djokovic slid down on his knees and commemorated the 9/11 ten-year-anniversary by putting on an FDNY baseball cap. The longtime rivals stayed cordial during the grueling matches and after the game Nadal even joked he'd have to "find solutions" to beat the high-energy champ.

Jelena and Novak have been dating since 2005, and were friends for about two years before they started dating. We bet they'll have a huge celebration tonight! Novak made sure to thank his "girlfriend" for her support when accepting the trophy and $1.8 million check. Aw!
