Bergareche and Limones will hang up their rackets at the Keler Euskadi Open

The Keler Euskadi Open will put an end to the World Padel Tour season but it will also provide the setting for the farewell of two players on tour. Javier Limones and Jaime Bergareche will retire from the professional game after San Sebastian.

At the age of 37, Javier Limones has played over 130 matches on the World Padel Tour and, after an entire career dedicated to the sport he loves, he's decided to call it a day. In this last season, Limones has played alongside Victor Ruiz. The Andalucian player has thanked his sponsors, coaches, partners, family and fans for their support throughout the years.

Throughout his extensive career, Limones has had the chance of winning the World Championships in 2011 with the Spanish national team, as well as the European Championships in 2009.

Despite his farewell, Limones hasn't lost his sense of humour as he's mentioned, tongue in cheek, that he's trying to convince Bergareche to play the Miami Padel Masters next year: "it would be a good place for us to retire from the professional tour".

Jaime Bergareche's farewell will also be emotional as the Basque player will be retiring at the age of 27, after five years on tour, to focus on other professional challenges. His aim will now be to move into the business world, making the most of his Degree in Business Studies. A new environment which he will undoubtedly fit into with his endeavour and talent.

Bergareche, a leading figure in Basque padel, has thanked his family, sponsors, coaches and fans for their support throughout these years in which he's accomplished his dream. In this last season Bergareche has lined up alongside Martin Sanchez Piñeiro. The fact that he'll be playing so close to home will make his farewell all the more emotional.

The World Padel Tour would like to thank both athletes for their commitment and behaviour which has helped the sport of padel to grow and we would also like to wish them all the best for the future.
