I for one would. Agassi had joke draws to most of his hard court slams- both U.S Opens, and the 2001 and 2003 Australian Opens were the worst in history. And Sampras did not deny him as many hard court slams as people think, he was never winning the 1990 U.S Open, unlikely to win the 2001 U.S Open, and he could have been beaten at the 95 U.S Open by Courier or 2002 U.S Open by a better day Hewitt in the final too.

Most people rate Connors, Lendl, and McEnroe above Agassi on hard courts despite that they all have fewer hard court slams.
That's a tough call. IMO, if Nadal wins 1-2 USO and another 2 AO ... he'll be very close to Agassi on HC.

No doubt that Nadal is better on HC than Agassi on clay... even without a USO.
