I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

We'll have to wait a bit longer - it's had to be re-arranged because of an injury to Pete - it's now set for June 24th.

Marcelo wins in Chile!



Elegance tennis
Marcelo Ríos was imposed Pete Sampras in a deluxe party in Sand Santiago.

Both former Nº1 of the world offered a he/she rushes of high technical, very disputed level and where the national one conquered for 3-6, 6-3 and 7-6(4), in 1 hour and 43 minutes.

Sampras, 36 years old, began with the whole encounter, insinuating that he/she would take the confrontation very seriously. It broke in the second game, being ahead for 2-0.

Although Ríos, 32 years old, was able to break of having returned by a double it lacks of the North American, the natural of Washington it got the break in the fourth game again.

The winner of 14 Grand Slam had enough the advantage to keep the initial sleeve for an expressive one 6-3, in 29 minutes. Ríos was not able to with a Sampras that showed a superlative level and that perfectly it could be among the 20 or 30 of the ATP, according to the experts.

In the partial second the panorama would vary, in spite of the fact that the American broke in the third game, taking advantage.

Chinese, more put in the court and already quite suitable to the quick court of the Sand Santiago, recovered the break in the fourth game (2-2) and he/she returned to repeat in the sixth (4-2).

Sampras continued taking out at great level, but it could not avoid that the Left-handed of Vitacura fastened the chapter for 6-3, in 31 minutes.

In the third and definitive partial both pulled up winning their chances very well to the serve. Sampras based on their good service and solid net game and Ríos grace to their formidable doll.

After an even Sep, the most dramatic and touching thing one lived in the twelfth game, when Ríos saved four party balls and it forced the tie break.

In the definition, also for the heart attack, the best Chilean racket in the history was imposed by 7-4, keeping a bereavement of high technical level.

In the professional era, Sampras had defeated Ríos in the two occasions in that you/they faced: In Roland Garros 1994 (7-6(5), 7-6(4) and 6-4) and in Sttutgart 2001 (4-6, 7-6(3) and 6-4).

Also, Pistol Pete repeated the victory last Sunday in Sao Paulo, in the final of the Nosas Caixa Grand Champions, for 6-2 and 7-6 (5), valid for the Tour of Veteran.

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Tenis de gala
Marcelo Ríos se impuso a Pete Sampras en un partido de lujo en Arena Santiago.

Ambos ex Nº1 del mundo ofrecieron un lance de alto nivel técnico, muy disputado y donde el nacional venció por 3-6, 6-3 y 7-6(4), en 1 hora y 43 minutos.

Sampras, de 36 años, comenzó con todo el encuentro, dando a entender que se tomaría muy en serio la confrontación. Quebró en el segundo game, adelantándose por 2-0.

Si bien Ríos, de 32 años, logró romper de vuelta por una doble falta del norteamericano, el natural de Washington volvió a conseguir el break en el cuarto juego.

La ventaja le bastó al ganador de 14 Grand Slam para quedarse con la manga inicial por un expresivo 6-3, en 29 minutos. Ríos no podía con un Sampras que mostró un nivel superlativo y que perfectamente podría estar entre los 20 o 30 de la ATP, según los entendidos.

En el segundo parcial el panorama variaría, pese a que el estadounidense quebró en el tercer game, tomando ventaja.

El Chino, más metido en la cancha y ya bastante acomodado a la rápida cancha del Arena Santiago, recuperó el break en el cuarto juego (2-2) y volvió repetir en el sexto (4-2).

Sampras siguió sacando a gran nivel, pero no pudo evitar que el Zurdo de Vitacura abrochara el capítulo por 6-3, en 31 minutos.

En el tercer y definitivo parcial ambos arrancaron ganando muy bien sus chances al saque .Sampras en base a su certero servicio y sólido juego de red y Ríos merced a su formidable muñeca.

Luego de un set parejo, lo más dramático y emocionante se vivió en el duodécimo game, cuando Ríos salvó cuatro bolas de partido y forzó el tie break.

En la definición, también para el infarto, la mejor raqueta chilena de la historia se impuso por 7-4, quedándose con un duelo de alto nivel técnico.

En la era profesional, Sampras había derrotado a Ríos en las dos ocasiones en que se enfrentaron: En Roland Garros 1994 (7-6(5), 7-6(4) y 6-4) y en Sttutgart 2001 (4-6, 7-6(3) y 6-4).

Además, Pistol Pete repitió el triunfo el domingo pasado en Sao Paulo, en la final del Nosas Caixa Grand Champions, por 6-2 y 7-6 (5), válido por el Tour de Veteranos.

Re: Marcelo "CH1NO" R1OS Thread!!!!!!

Just got back from the seniors event in Portugal! Saw all of Marcelo's matches, a couple of his press conferences and his 'meet and greet' sessions. He looked in great shape - very lean - and yes, it was all too easy for him, but that isn't his fault. Marcelo made some very intersting comments in his winner's press conference -

Marcelo said, with no disrespect to Vilas, he would prefer a more organised system. Players playing in age categories, with ranking points available, bigger draws, and players not being allowed to play only on their fav surface. He said he would be happy to play anybody, but the seniors could be so much better - even going as far as saying 'real' events such as at the slams.
