I agree with this assessment. Talking from a purely ball-striking POV (as in the ability to hit the ball early, hard, consistently) Agassi is probably the best I've seen. That's why he could jerk his opponents around like a yo-yo.
And that's also why, even at 35 yrs old, he could beat players much younger than himself and go on to make slam SF's/F's with a beaten up back & awful movement.
