TENNIS- Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan and his partner Marcelo Arevalo got the better of veteran Leander Paes and Miguel Angel Reyes-Varela 6-1, 6-4 to win Monterrey ATP Challenger in Mexico.

The pair earlier won the ATP Chengdu Open last week.

Talking about his new partnership with Arevalo, he said, “Marcelo is a big guy, he has a big serve and makes strong returns. He helps out with my serve because he is a big guy with range.”

It is Jeevan’s fourth title win this season on the Challenger circuit, having triumphed in Winnetka, Ilkley and Dallas, and fifth overall.
