Shame he didn't get the back sorted sooner. And of course, he just has to be contraversial! I wish he'd grow the pony-tail back.

Using an on-line translator -

It doesn't discard to return to the Tour of Veteran | to ascend
The former number one of the world recognized that the back was operated and that it assures to be thinking of being part of the Tour of Veteran again.

I operated my back after seven years. I put on four fasteners and I am totally healthy. For that reason sack the conclusion that of having operated me before this form, it would maybe be playing still. The decision in its moment not to operate me was bad. It was the worst, it recognized.

Does he have offers play again?

They have called "me of Mexico and China, but the last time that I played in the Tour of Veteran I was disappointed. The first tournaments were very organized, but in the last ones we didn't have neither dressing room. But I don't close the door play again, but I don't know like the back" will respond, he remarked.

Marcelo's won the Maestros del Tenis tournament (final against Pioline, 7-5, 6-7(5), 10-6); mentioned how much he liked playing tennis again, how little he trained and how quickly got into shape; despite all that, and even though he's got an invitation to another seniors exho in Bogota in March, M. said he couldn't come back full-time to veterans tour, his body wouldn't take it. Still, there's hope, and he's looking good...

'physical discomfort', whatever that means:

http://deportes.13.cl/tenis/marcelo-...blemas-fisicos

..and rough translation, mangled by google and me:

Marcelo Rios will not play in Bogotá because of physical problems
Updated 06/05/2011 - 11:06
The "Chinese" would not participate along with other players like Kafelnikov, Moya and Enqvist in an exhibition tournament in the third week of May. The media talk about physical discomfort affecting the best racket in Chilean history.

Marcelo Rios will not play in the ATP Champions 2011 to be held in Bogotá between 19 and 22 May. Chilean tennis player and former world number one feels "physical discomfort" and will be replaced by another player, Thomas Muster.

The information was released by the Colombian daily El Tiempo. The news highlights the great loss for the event, which means "Chinese" will not face Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Carlos Moya, Thomas Enqvist, Mark Philippoussis, the Frenchman Fabrice Santoro and Colombian Mauricio Hadad and Mario Rincon.

The last time Marcelo Rios played a senior tournament was in Monticello casino in February. After winning the final to Frenchman Cedric Pioline, he was crowned champion showing signs of great talent that led him to the top of world tennis, the only player in history who won the No. 1 in juniors, adults and seniors.

Back Surgery, Expecting Triplets, But Marcelo Rios Is Back!
A back injury required surgery and his growing family needed his undivided attention, but former World No.1 Marcelo Rios is finally back on the ATP Champions Tour after more than two years away.
The Chilean went down to Greg Rusedski in his first match at the Royal Guard Champions in his home town of Santiago, and then revealed he and his wife are expecting triplets before the end of the year.
Rios, who thrashed Andre Agassi in Miami in 1998 to reach the world’s top ranking spot, could not keep the smile off his face despite losing 6-1, 4-6, 10-4 (Champions’ Tie-Break) to Rusedski.
“For sure it’s nice to feel the support from the crowd again,” said Rios, who was greeted by 10,000 people in his homeland after reaching No.1. “It’s been a long time that I didn’t play at all and it’s always fun to play in Chile. Flying and being away is tough with my family so being here, playing so close to my home is really nice.”
He already has three daughters, and is very excited at the prospect of welcoming three more children into the world.
“That (having triplets) is one of the reasons that it has been more difficult to concentrate on tennis!” he said. “My wife is already 26 weeks pregnant and you have triplets at about 32 weeks so she’s pretty big right now. And I already have three kids, so I have a big family and soon it will be very big. It’s very exciting and once they’re here it will be a lot of fun. I always wanted a big family.”
Having endured back surgery, the challenge has been trying to find time to rehabilitate and return to the court, particularly when doctors suggested it may not happen at all.
“I’ve been not feeling that good physically over the past two years,” said Rios. “I’ve had back surgery and it’s been pretty tough for me. They told me I wouldn’t be able to play tennis again. I’ve just been trying to do my best to be able to get back on the court.”

So, it seems this is the end....machine translated, sorry.

SANTIAGO .- Marcelo Rios is showed at his best physical and returned to succumb in the ATP Champions Tour that is taking place in the Central Court National Stadium. On Friday, former world number one lost his second match in the tournament. Now was the Argentine Mariano Zabaleta who noticed the "Chinese" 7-6, 6-2. Rivers was never found in the field and seeing that suffering physical discomfort in the back was not allowed to perform at their highest level began to get frustrated and never able to focus on the game. In this way, the Chilean was no chance of winning the title, since it has two defeats in as many games. The same player after the game said his feelings about the loss to the trans-Andean. "When you're not physically fit everything falls apart, I'm not enjoying the game even though you are winning, I'm not able to tie a game because I'm afraid of heartbreaking," he said. "I am not able to give and not worth feel as on the court after many years of success "reaffirmed. Finally, Rios admitted he does not want surgery again and that "can not play this level again" because of that injury.

Congratulations to Marcelo and his wife Paula on the arrival of their triplets - a son at last - Marcelo, and 2 daughters, Antonella and Agustna.

Yesterday, after noon, Marcelo Rios Pavic with his sisters Antonella and Augustina came to this world, ten days before the 36th birthday of his father and in the town where he grew up: Vitacura. According to the "Red Carpet", the child weighed a kilo and a half and girls, a kilo and a kilo 400 grams, respectively.

Article by Scoop Malinowski - Marcelo Rios And Family Approve My Rios Book


I was fortunate to meet Marcelo Rios and his mom and dad tonight at the Waldorf Astoria ATP Number One Celebration on Friday night. I am very proud that they all read and enjoyed the book.

After the formal part of the celebration, the Rios group stayed for a while after and were conversing up front near the stage, with his former agent Jeff Schwartz and a few others.

His dad Jorge approached me first introducing himself as Jorge Rios the father of Marcelo. I was a bit surprised at first, he looked straight into my eyes very serious. At first I wasn’t sure how he felt, but I held my ground and didn’t blink. A handsome strong man, he spoke slowly but firmly in very good English. He said he read it four months ago and he thought I did a very good job with the book, he knew I did a lot of “hard work” and he stated that he liked the unique way I did it and especially how so many of the players expressed respect for his son.

He also told me this was their first time to NYC in fifteen years and that Marcelo had also been to NYC when he was two years old.

Marcelo’s mom Alicia, a small woman with a bright, happy smile said, “Thank you very much for writing a book about my son,” before giving me a hug.

Marcelo Rios also came over to me and said, “So you’re Scoop,” and I replied, “So you’re Marcelo.” We had a little embrace. Marcelo also expressed that he liked the book, except for a few things said by “anonymous” people that weren’t true, but overall he added, “it was pretty good.”

It was a very special night. Very happy that the Rios family enjoyed my book and the unique way it was constructed. Stay tuned for photos (my phone battery died earlier in the night and tennis writer Kamakshi Tandon has the only other photos of me with the Rios clan).

(Note: Marcelo Rios: The Man We Barely Knew is available at amazon.com and also the U.S. Open bookstore.)

Oh well, at least they were happy with it (I wasn't, thought it was quite poorly researched and written, but it's still better than nothing).
Thanks for that, Jenrios.

On a Marcelo-related note - his futuristic-looking new house:
