Obviously Rios:

1997 Monte Carlo champion
1998 Indian Wells champion
1998 Miami champion
1998 Rome champion
1998 Grand Slam Cup champion
1999 Hamburg champion
6 weeks as world number 1

1998 Australian Open runner-up
1998 and 1999 French Open quarter finalist
1997 Wimbledon Round of 16 Loser
1997 US Open quarter finalist

Yes, Gonzalez may have got to the quarter finals of every major, but Rios' overall achievements are superior by some way. However, Gonzalez's beatings of Nadal and Haas at the 2007 Australian Open are performances that Rios never came close to at a major.
