while courier faced a tougher opponent in sampras than agassi did in ivanisevic ... agassi's game simply translated better on the fast, slick grass ...... that's because his return was just that much better than courier and while courier's serve was better, it wasn't that much better ....
Agreed on most of this except the bolded part. In 1992/3 Courier's serve was way better than Agassi's. Agassi was still in "let's start this rally" serving mentality back then. He may have translated better to grass but he was Courier's pigeon so I don't think it would have mattered enough imo.
