Second seeds Tecau-Rojer needed just 60 minutes to defeat eighth-seeded Bopanna-Mergea 6-4, 6-3 to clinch the title in what can be called a one-sided encounter.

The 35-year-old Bopanna, who made his second appearance at the year-ending tournament finals on Sunday after losing the 2012 final in a super tie-break while partnering compatriot Mahesh Bhupathi, missed a chance to be the first Indian to win the elite tournament.

No Indian has ever won the elite tournament where only the season's top eight players/pairs get to play the year-ending event.
