Following on John MacEnroe's and Pat Cash's books, the biography of Chilean tennis player Marcelo Rios with the title "En la Gloria y el Reves" (the title is a game of words "reves" means in Spanish "backhand" but also "to suffer a setback") was launched in Santiago, July 16, 2002. The book talks about an irritable Rios, the fast-paced life he used to live before getting married and his hotheaded relationship with the media. Rios, who initially collaborated with the authors, later disapproved of certain passages about his private life and did not show for the event.

It must be an interesting book!

His career is so full of ups and downs, and also he is so controversial, and probably most of them are in this biography! And it's always good to read something like that :D

I hope there is a portuguese version it :bounce:

Becool, I am sure you would be able to follow the Spanish version as this language is very similar to Portuguese...

But it's not the same, it's kinda similar, but most of the words are different, and COMPLETELY different, and I'm lazy to figure it out what that means :P
