Djokovic captured his third season finale trophy by dominating play from the beginning and keeping Nadal playing defense for most of the match. Nadal tried to play aggressive but the Serbian champion's defense reversed the play quickly.

In doubles action, the sixth seeded duo of David Marrero and Fernando Verdasco became the third all-Spanish team to lift the doubles title at the ATP World Tour Finals by defeating the number one ranked Bryan Brothers 7-5, 6-7(3), 10-7.

Bob and Mike Bryan are three time champions of the year ending championship. The Bryans had a three match winning streak against the Spanish pairing of Marrero and Verdasco.

Djokovic pocketed $1,923,000 in prize money and 1,500 Emirates ATP Rankings points, while 27-year-old Nadal won $1,013,000 and 1,000 points as he dropped to a 10-4 record in finals this year.
