Muchos Rios is a show about his rise to number one. So it must be about 7 or 8 years old. So much wasted potential. It's too bad he got injured.
He recently beat Coria in a farewell exhibition match. Who knows how hard they were both trying but Coria said he could still be winning tournaments.
Yeah, I remember that study, Scott. Rios put more spin on his serve than anybody. Sampras had the highest combination of spin AND pace.
When Rios was the best player in the world I remember people always commenting about how potent his serve was for a "short" guy. Agassi, after he lost that finals that made Rios number one, said he wasn't expecting Rios' serve to be so big. It had a lot of action on it and he moved it around much like Federer does today. Plus he was a lefty. Incredibly talent. And I think he picked up a racket relatively late in life.
