Marcelo Ríos: "Federer is the best player in the world"

"Federer is the best. He's much more complete and physically resists more. I see Nadal more injury prone".

Also asked about the award Paul Capdeville received by the Chilean circle of journos as "best Chilean tennis player of the year" he replied: "He won an award? I'd rather not make any comments. I had no idea, but the award should have been won by anyone but Capdeville".

Obviously relating to their total accomplishments to date Federer is well ahead of Nadal and in the open era everybody. Nadal could overtake Federer before he retires, but time will determine if that happens.

Currently Nadal is the best in the world.

Rios has got it right.

Federer is the better player, regardless of results nowadays.

The second quote is much more interesting and newsworthy.

Best part is "I'd rather not make any comments" followed immediately by a comment.

Well what a sad state of affairs is Chilean tennis in nowdays if Capdeville was their best player in the year.

Re: Marcelo Ríos: "Federer is the best player in the world"

LOL Rios giving lessons about injuries, is it April Fools Day? He showed again the twat he is, not just on the court. It's clear who's the best player when someone wins 3 majors in a year. Just winning one of those Nadal would have done what Rios never did: winning a major.

I think you said in the Wilander thread that everyone was entitled to their opinion, why do you bash Rios here?

I do not see a GS next to his name. He could have achieved a lot more but he just didn't give a shit so he can just pack it
