The World No 2 beat Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro to give the hosts an unbeatable 3-1 lead, rallying from a set down to see off the 2009 US Open champion 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 7-6 (7/0).
"It was an unbelievable match. These guys are great and that's why we were in the final," said Spanish captain Albert Costa.
