Sania came in as a substitute to Kirsten in the middle of the match.
Sania and Rohan Bopanna came a cropper in the Mixed doubles set, losing 1-6 to Marcelo Melo and Bertens.
Nick Kyrgios joined Melo and both took over Feliciano López and Ivan Dodig and added on the misery of home team with a clinical 6-2 win.
With that result, Slammers had sealed the title, rendering the men's singles inconsequential.
Marcos Baghdatis completed the win with a 6-4 win over Feliciano López.
