It would be difficult to make a call between Agassi and Connors for 2 handers. Agassi had more topspin and could generate more "power". Connors was so clean, so simple, SO effficient, and had more variety, with shades of underspin, though, he did not have the more severe topspin dippers and angles of Agassi. A toss-up. Connors 2 handed approach was probably better.
