Mahesh Bhupathi won the first title of the 2013 season when he combined with French man Michael Llodra to edge past Robert Lindstedt and Nenand Zimonjic in the summit clash of the Dubai Tennis Championships, here on Saturday.

Unseeded Bhupathi and Llodra downed the third seeded rivals 7-6 (6) 7-6 (6) in the fiercely fought final.

It was Bhupathi's fifth title in Dubai.
