Andre Agassi to face Marcelo Rios!!!

Just a quick note to say at the end of this month in Chilie, Andre Agassi will take on Marcelo Rios in an exhibition match. During commentary for ESPN in Indian Wells, Agassi's coach Darren Cahill said Andre was in the best shape of his life and Darren will be working with Andre next week to fine tune his tennis for the encounter! Should be great and it will be live on ESPN. Come on Andre!!!

C'mon 19 months ago Agassi took a set off Fed in the USO final and had him down in the fourth....gimmie a break...Agassi will crush RIOS.

Re: Andre Agassi to face Marcelo Rios!!!

Don't think he'll play on the tour again, but I could see him doing a Jimmy Connors and becoming a coach to quite a high profile player. Could also see him getting involved with the running of the ATP.

Re: Andre Agassi to face Marcelo Rios!!!

Should be no problem for Andre. Also, Andre was hurt in that USO final loss to Roger.

Re: Andre Agassi to face Marcelo Rios!!!

I was under the impression that Andre had a pretty serious and chronic back problem. Good to know he is feeling better then. If he's healthy, he shouldn't have any problem taking care of business.

Re: Andre Agassi to face Marcelo Rios!!!

Just looked at their H2H and very surprised to see they've only played each other 3 times. (Rios has won 2 and retired in the third when they had one set each)

I've heard Rios is in v.good form recently and there have been a lot of complaints from other players that he is playing regularly on the senior tour, as he is actually of the age and standard of the main tour. Haven't seen him play myself though, so perhaps that is an exaggeration???

I think it would be a close match.

Re: Andre Agassi to face Marcelo Rios!!!

How is Andre suddenly in the best shape of his life? If that were the case he should be on the tour again (although it would be awkward given his emotional farewell 6 months ago). Barring any physical problems, he's more than good enough to make it to the top 5.
