Continued progress and consistency in major events, in particular reaching the last 16 of the J.P. Morgan China Squash Open and third round of the PSA Windy City Squash Open in Chicago, saw Iker climb into the world’s top 30.

Iker Pajares Bernabeu was a key member of the Spanish team that finished in 8th at the 2019 WSF Men’s World Team Squash Championship in Washington, D.C., where Spain recorded its best ever result at the sport’s premiere team event and a third-place finish in the 2019 European Team Championships in England.

In 2021, Iker Pajares Bernabeu claimed his 10th PSA World Tour title, with a win at FES Spanish Open Ciudad de Palencia and continues to demonstrate a level of professionalism to match his talent which will undoubtedly see him continue to enjoy further future success on the PSA World Tour.

Iker started 2023 by winning his third Spanish National title in empathic style in Palencia.

The Spanish No.1, who was crowned Spanish Champion in 2020 & 2021 with wins over his great domestic rival Borja Golán, won his third title with a succession of impressive straight-game victories over Abel Martín, Adrian Garcia, Robertino Pezzota & Pascal Gómez who he defeated 11-0 11-3 11-5 in his 6th Spanish National final to collect a much deserved third national title.

In October 2023, Iker defeated Robertino Pezzota to win the Copa de España Squash 2023 at the Squash Santiago Club, and followed-up his Spanish domestic title the following month with victory at the Open International Niort Venise Verte in France, where he overcame fellow UNSQUASHABLE player Rory Stewart in the final to claim his 11th PSA World Tour title.

Iker won his fourth Spanish National title in February 2024 with an 11-7 11-8 6-11 11-5 victory over Bernat Jaume in Santiago.
