Novak Djokovic bageled Gael Monfils as inaugural champions Indian Aces signed off their campaign IPTL campaign with a 15-29 defeat against UAE Royals in Dubai on Saturday.
Serbian great Djokovic wrapped up the league with a 6-0 thrashing of the Frenchman.
Indian Aces' Ana Ivanovic had secured a close 6-5 win against Kristina Mladenovic but the Frenchwoman combined with Serbia's Nenad Zimonjic to outplay India's star pair of Rohan Bopanna and Sania Mirza 6-2 in the mixed doubles contest.
There was no stopping the hosts after that as they won all three remaining matches.
Zimonjic and Goran Ivanisevic scored a comfortable 6-2 win over Monfils and Cedric Pioline in the men's doubles to consolidate the lead.
Ivanisevic secured a close 6-5 win over Pioline in the Men's Legends singles and Djokovic closed the inaugural league in style.
