Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic finished off the India leg of the International Premier Tennis League with a highly-anticipated meeting between the two stars in front of a frenzied New Delhi crowd on Monday.

The one-set match between the two rivals ended in a 6-6 stalemate under the format rules, which meant Djokovic's UAE Royals team came away with a 29-22 win over Federer's Indian Aces.

The exhibition-style tournament features five one-set matches between the two teams, with the overall score made up of the total number of games won by each side.

Earlier, Federer teamed with Gael Monfils to beat Djokovic and Nenad Zimonic in the doubles.

Each team has both past and present stars from the men's and women's tours.
