Sampras could be for those who have high regard for fast court record and subjective views on peak level of play worth on faster courts. Tilden could be as well for some I suppose. That would be it.
Nadal/Agassi, Even if one does not value longevity, he or she can hardly omit Rosewall from the top ten. Muscles keeps too many records to be omitted. I just mention most majors won, most majors won in a row (9) among others.
