Bollettieri Loves "Marcelo Rios: The Man We Barely Knew" book, calls it magnificent

It's kind of a sleeper subject but the new book about Marcelo Rios was well received by Nick Bollettieri...


“Excellent job on the book. You did it in a very interesting way. The book is magnificent. I’m going to tell a lot of people that they should read it.”


Rios was a fascinating eccentric character in his time in tennis, the likes of which we will never see again in terms of rebel attitude and marvelous aesthetic talent. It's good to see a historically important player like Rios getting some recognition since he retired about a decade ago.

I'd love to read more excerpts if you can manage it here...

Tennisconnected recently ran a full chapter interview with Bollettieri about Rios, you can google that. The book is $12.99 or something inexpensive like that at amazon.

Thanks for directing me to the site! :)
