It's over, at almost 37 years old, Pablo Lima is putting an end to his career as a professional player. The Brazilian, who originally intended to retire at the end of the season, finally decided to stop after this Madrid Master, his body making him suffer too much, and his head no longer keeping up.
It is therefore on an anecdotal 6/3 6/3 and alongside a veteran like him, Agustin Silingo, that the native of Porto Alegre bows out. Indeed, facing Lebron and Galan, the two elders appeared somewhat overwhelmed this Wednesday.
It was in front of a Caja Magica won over to his cause, and with a few tears, that Lima was able to enjoy the last ovation of his career and a plaque offered by the WPT to congratulate him on his career.
The one who will have spent three years at the top of the padel world champion will not have been able to offer himself one last victory on the track today but he is leaving “satisfied with what he has accomplished, and with a clear conscience”.
The powerful left-hander leaves padel professional with a busy career, and as his tormentors of the day pointed out in a post-match interview, he “will have marked the history of padel global“. At Nacho Palencia's microphone in turn, the Brazilian, who was able to enjoy a nice clip of the best moments of his career on the screens of the Caja Magica, was very moved, thanked his family, the public, his coaches, World Padel Tour, Agustin Silingo…
Lima will have assured that it will remain close to the padel, it now remains to be seen in what way…
