I think an interesting and important thing to note is that Agassi had a (convincing) winning record against every top serve volleyer of his era. So court speeds or big servers do not appear to matter to Andre Agassi:

v Rafter 10:5
v Stich 6:0
v Becker 10:4
v Phillippoussis 6:2
v Edberg 6:3
v Krajicek 4:3
v Ivanisevic 4:3
v Rusedski 9:2

The only top attacking player Agassi does not have a winning record against is Pete Sampras. This suggest that Sampras bought something extra to the table other than Agassi just having trouble with a "big server".
