For those who were asking, Rios won 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.
That sucks. I was hoping Agassi would kick his ass. But I guess Rios had the advantage, going into it with plenty of match practice on the Seniors Tour. Agassi last played against, Becker I guess.
Agassi can still play tennis? I thought he was mortally injured?! Guess not.
Just Keep dreaming little boy
Andre Agassi was like a little toy for Rios.
Just having fun with him
Roddick, actually. AA won 6-4, 6-4 in that exo.
Wow what a defeat, beating a guy with multiple fused disks LOL
Where do all these people come from?
Well, both Agassi and Rios have bad backs. So, it was fair
I watched it already...I saw no toying around from either player.. they both are limited with movement... Agassi has a more crushing power, while Rios kinda plays very relaxed... Its just one of those matchups for Andre. He had alot of problems with Karol Kucera as well, remember??? Just like Fed has with Canas?? and Nadal on slow surfaces... The biggest factor is playing in Santiago Chile...I think they are gonna do it again in Vegas,if so that gives Andre the edge... either way,it was a showdown from two of the greatest ballstrikers,ever!! exept one has 8 slams,the other 0
Well then, Rios kind of, sucks at having fun 'big boy!' 3 sets (apparently close)?
Really, you think Rios is in the same condition as AA? AA has fused disks you know what that means right?
Rios is extremely healthy, while AA should not even be playing tennis or any other kind of sport if he does not want to end up in a wheelchair for the rest of his life
i saw the highlights, and for what i did see it was an intense match, played really seriously. those guys can still run down the furry ball.
My unlcle had the disc fusion--and it is not always a a wise choice as it limits (depending on which level the fusing occured) the ability to bend over (ex. a common move such as bending over to flatten your hands against the ground in front of your feet). It can be extremely painful and requires a life of muscle-relaxers such as Cyclobenzaprine, etc. On the other hand, if Agassi takes it easy--meaning no winding up on returns...no sprinting from one end of the baseline to other, he can play the odd exhibition.
Agassi was never my favorite player by any stretch of the imagination, but I sympathise with his physical problems.
Come one... An exhibition, at Rios place - of course Rios will win. Just as Agassi will win when/if they play at Vegas.
I wouldn't want to win in front of that crowd either.
Bah, I think he's taking the opportunity of playing Rios to see if he could be competitive in the Seniors Tour.
