Paris - How the French Open men's final unfolded on Twitter on Sunday:

"Hello. Murray has come to play"

- Former US Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe

"@andy_murray long hold feels just as important as @GarbiMuguruza tough 1st set holds yesterday in her final."

- Former US Open finalist Pam Shriver

"great Scott that was a good set of tennis from the head pointing and very aggressive"

- Former WTA player, now TV pundit, Rennae Stubbs

"@DjokerNole seldom has a crowd behind him this much. Did the ball kid collaborations post match help or GR crowd finally feels it's ND time?"

- Shriver

"Murray wins opening set 6-3 off Djokovic. The Brit has never lost match at #RolandGarros when winning 1st set (26-0)"

- Roland Garros official Twitter feed

"Tides are changing on Chatrier. Djokovic hits a perfectly placed volley dropshot to further lead to 4-1*."

- Roland Garros again

"Amazing how this match has completely turned around after Djoker saved break point in 1st game of 2nd set"

- Brad Gilbert, former player and coach of Andre Agassi

"The first set was won by Andy tactically. The 2 others by Nole cause Andy has been lacking energy and couldn't dictate. 4th will be mental?"

- Patrick Mouratoglou, coach of Serena Williams

"Turning into Beat Down City"

- McEnroe

"Incredible tennis from #Djokovic as he breaks #Murray to love and will serve for the title at 5-2! #ComeOnAndy"

- British Tennis official account

"Congratulations to @DjokerNole amazing accomplishment of 1st @rolandgarros title and completing the Djoker slam 1st since Laver to hold all4"

- Gilbert
