Default groundstrokes: hitting the ball on the rise

How important is this?

I made a conscious effort to do this recently, and I noticed several things:

1) Against an opponent who hits soft shots, I was able to generate much more pace than if I waited for the ball to rise up, then come down

2) I had to adjust my timing, so as not to hit the ball into the net

3) I was able to hit a lot more winners.

Agassi was famous for this, right? Also, Federer?
