The Australian Open champion, 21, completely dominated the experienced Russian in the first set and looked on course for an empathic quickfire win.

Davydenko responded in the second set but Djokovic deservedly claimed the title in one hour and 42 minutes to take home a cheque for US$1.24million (£902,114) after winning the eight-man showpiece.

The Serbian, who last won a title this year on the clay in Rome, went 0-3 on his Masters Cup debut 12 months ago, but this year followed up wins over Juan Martin del Potro and Davydenko in the round robin stage with a hard-fought semi-final victory against Gilles Simon on Saturday.

Miami Masters champion Davydenko downed in-form world number four Andy Murray in his last four clash after earlier beating Del Potro and Jo Wilfried-Tsonga.
