    Miami final 1998 against Agassi, his matches against Costa and Moya in RG 1998... There are some others but those three are really good matches... The first cited really need to be seen, Rios is on absolut fire against Agassi to take the number one ranking that day...

    Rios delivered in a huge way in the 1998 Lipton Final. He was up against an opponent who had won multiple slams and the #1 ranking would be his with this win, Pete had held the top spot in pro tennis for over a year straight. Not to mention no south American had ever been #1 in the world before. Rios may not have kissed another man like Ace Ventura, but he knows pressure...
