He did not stop playing tennis at all, he played the whole year of 1997 (he played 14 tournaments + Davis Cup that year).

The only time when Agassi really stop playing tennis for some months (from 24-9-1993 to 21-2-1994, almost 5 months) it was because of a wrist surgery.
14 tournaments is not that much. And he took at least a full month off during the season, according to his own book. BG told him either to get back in shape or just to call it a day, so he spent a month retraining and building back his strength and stamina before starting over on the challenger circuit.
