I know, it's not this easy.

OK, I found this:
A former UNLV strength coach, Reyes first met Agassi in the Runnin' Rebels weight room almost 14 years ago. The two formed a lasting bond, and Reyes since has presided over the intense workouts and vomit-inducing dune runs that allow Agassi to bench-press 350 pounds while outlasting players nearly half his age.

I am not sure if this isn't just a figure promoted by Reyes or Agassi's camp.

Even more impressive is that when Martina N was at the top, I heard the same figures (over 300lbs bench press) for her. Now, looking at MN's arms, would not be surprised either.
