I would describe him more as an aggressive baseliner/ballstriker rather than a basher. Not every offensive player is a basher, Agassi liked to dictate and boss rather than blast winners. I agree about Blake being more of a basher although his tennis on a good day was very watchable.
Yes, It's not easy to categorize players as only bashers, pushers, moonballers, etc... But he was closer to be a basher than any other category.

Well Del Potro is categorized as a full ballbasher and he rarely searchs winners as only way to gain points (in fact his rate of winners use to be very low compared to other players) DelPo loves to dictate and force you to make UE and put you on a defensive line as Agassi did.
PS: I loved Blake at his peak.
