Roger Federer’s High Praise For Marcelo Rios
Roger Federer: “I was a big admirer of Marcelo. I thought he was one of the best players with the best talent around. He was one of my favorite players at that time, being around 1998. Him and Pete Sampras back then were my favorite players. Happy for him that he got to be #1 in the world. Not happy that he never won a Grand Slam. But I was fortunate to play him a few times and practice with him a few times. I have good memories of Marcelo.”
Interesting that Federer selected Marcelo Rios as one of his co-favorite players back in the late 1990’s, and interestingly omitting that fella named Andre Agassi.
To lump in Rios in the same company with one Pete Sampras, is about as high a compliment that a tennis player could ever get, especially coming from the likes of Mr. Roger Federer.
