Marcelo Rios had minor surgery on both elbows (within 12 days of each other) by Dr. Badia and weeks later this happens…
As reported by TENNIS TOURTALK, Marcelo Rios has returned to the courts. The 42-year-old former World No. 1 from Chile beat Nicolás Lapentti from Ecuador 6-4, 5-7, 11-9 in an exhibition match on Friday held at Gran Arena Monticello. Rios reached the top of the ATP-Rankings 20 years ago and showed that he is still in good shape.
“Without pain and without scars, and quick recovery.”
The amazing part of the story is that Marcelo Rios had Bilateral Tenex Elbow Procedure by Dr Alejandro Badia at the Badia Hand to Shoulder Center (BHSC) in Miami weeks before the match.
