Out of curiosity, what makes you think you'll find "r.squared" in your
"k" object? Did you see that in the help somewhere?

Anyway, given that you've already shown that you know how to calculate
RMSE of a regression model, it should be pretty straightforward to rig
up the formulas found on the wikipedia page to get R^2:
