It is Jeevan's fourth title win this season on the Challenger circuit, having triumphed in Winnetka, Ilkley and Dallas, and fifth overall.
"I was 0-40 down on my serve in the third game of the first set but I did good job keeping composure, making lot of first serves. There were a couple of uncharacteristic errors to go down 0-40 but we regrouped and had a vital hold," Jeevan told PTI.
"Getting that hold from 0-40 was key. We got a break in the next game and Marcelo served strong for a 4-1 lead. The momentum was with us," he said explaining the key points.
"In the second set, it was 1-0 for them, we were serving on deuce and Lee (Leander) played a great game to get the break, they were 2-0 up. Lee was playing very well. He seems to be playing better than a given point of time in this season. I feel he still has a lot of good tournaments in him to be honest after seeing him the way he is playing right now," Jeevan said.
"We played a good game to break back. Then we fought hard for a hold. Then we won a deuce game to go 5-4 up. We were 0-30 down serving for the match but I came up with some good serves and finished it at the net. "
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.
