We will never know but I think you're right. If you look at that year it really was Agassi's best year overall even though he won only one major. He was crushing people and was favored I believe in the final. We can all talk about strokes weaknesses and that but I thought Andre's major weakness in those days was his mind. By that I mean that he could get down on himself despite having such great talent. That loss probably shattered him.
In retrospect how often do you have major final when you have two all time great players that you know now were were at their absolute peaks. Yes I know we can argue about Federer and Nadal but I am not sure their peaks were at the same time.
