    Rios was/is a cry baby. Oh, and he was overrated too.

    The closest Rios ever came to "magic", was watching AA win 8 grand slams and a gold medal for his country.

    Sorry, but the match (set?) in question was one in which Rios showed purge genius. He turned into Dr. Feelgood (to use Agassi's own description prior to the match) against AA and basically ran him ragged. Every time Agassi took a step, Rios put the ball right behind him. I still remember this match and how the set I watched did something that hadn't happened in a long time. Watching Rios made me want to play tennis right then. It was an awesome display. And, this comes from an Agassi fan as well.
