In the last 15 years that I've followed live pro tennis and have watched many pros' matches and practices, I haven't seen anyone with better hands on the court; Rios had great feel for the ball and could win points with such ease, like no other player could do. The best practice session I've ever seen was between Rios and Ivanisevic at the end of the 90s, when Ivanisevic was still very good; Rios was toying with him on the court! As for his personality, I also agree it was problematic.
Looking for this match: 98 Estoril, Berasategui d. Moya 61 61
