because of his eyes. He looks like a chinese guy.

Man, I'm so glad I got to see Rios play on TV. I would hate to be a relative tennis newbie and have to hear about how amazing he was all the time.

He did look vaguely Asian.

i never really liked rios, he was good, but in the age of sampras and agassi, it would take nothing short of jesus himself to impress me.

not because of the color. It was for the shape of his eyes.

Good player at times but a headcase all the time.

He looks like a lazy man's Nadal. His footwork seems so casual in those points against Agassi. Great player to watch; definitely my vote for greatest player never to win a Grand Slam.

strange, 1st memory brought back of him was his crying over his girl friend stuff in front of cameras, kinda sweet i think

i actually like players such as rios, korda, philippoussis, they r the defiant ones, true to themselves, not showmanlike mr. good guys

Very moody player.. Practically all his match results reflects the state of mind he was in. Still, one of the most talented player to play in the ATP. One of my favorites.

I loved watching this guy play. best match I ever saw was him vs Arazi (at the French I think?). The most unbelievable shotmaking ever. Even Federer looks like he's trying compared to this guy.

^ Federer said that Rios was one of the players he loved to watch back in the day. A match between them to when they're both "on" would be about the sickest sh%t ever.

If my memory is right, Lungren used to coach Rios too. I

MHO, lundgren coached three of the most talented freakish players (rios, fed, safin).

Special player. When it comes to pure talent realized or unrealized, you can't beat Federer, Agassi, Safin and of course Marcelo Rios.

I would take Agassi off of your list and add in McEnroe and Nastase.

I have to agree. Agassi was a special talent. He didn't have the touch of a Rios, but his ball striking and reflexes were off the charts.

In January 1998, Ríos reached his first (and only) Grand Slam final at the Australian Open. Having been in strong form leading up to the final, he entered as a slight favourite against Petr Korda of the Czech Republic. But Korda was in inspired form and brushed a nervous Ríos aside in straight sets 6-2, 6-2, 6-2. Later, a doping test confirm that Korda was doped for that match.

Really? And, they didn't do anything about it?

He tested positive at '98 Wimbledon, not '98 Australia.

I would leave Agassi on and add both McEnroe / Nastase.

Actually Agassi could have been another Rios as he was underachieving during his "image is everything" years. Fortunately he dedicated himself to the game and went on to become one of the greats.

If only Rios had some heart combined with his great talent he also could have been one of the greats.

There were a lot of Chinese that sailed to Peru during the Gold Rush. Many Chinese were fooled and were sent to Peru as slaves. That's probably why there are a lot of Asians in Peru and why some Peruian looks Asian.

That explains why Rios never won a Major. No asian has ever won a Slam.

He did look vaguely Asian.

Native Americans (I'm talking about America, the Continent, not just the US) look kind of Asian, some more than others. That's one of the reasons scientists came up with the theory that the 1st settlers were Asians. Obviously, Rios, like many Latin Americans, has Native American genes in his mix.

Edit: I hope nobody gives me any racist crap, since I'm not making this up.

In a couple of thousand of years, from all the inter-ratial mixes, there will be just one race, the "Human Race". And one huge country; "Earth" (if we still have one). Then, this silly subject of who's what and who's from where, shall have ended. I have spoken.

I believe you are mistaken. Humans have been around for much longer that a couple thousand years and we still have very distinct races. While countries like America that have a huge influx of immigrants will be more mixed than say China, you will still have different and distinct races thousands of years from now. The goal is not to become one mixed race, but rather to learn how to respect and embrace our differences.

Agree with the last sentance. however i think that mixing races will only become more prevailant as the ease and cheapness of transportation around the world continues. My Girlfriend is Japanese and if it took 8 months to get to Japan like it used too rather than 12 hours (i am in UK) i seriously doubt i would have met her :)

So lets just say you are both right !!

I believe it is because he was arrested and his family didn't support him at home, so he moved away to a rich Orange County community and the kids gave him that name.

I'm not mistaken and I'm the only one who's right here. I'm not going to explain why, because I don't feel like writing too much. Plus, why would I want to do that?
