Many say that it is not any mystery. agassi disappeared for a few years in the 1990s when his contemporaries were wearing their body out. This is one reason he could play a full schedule until 2 years ago.
And right now, the "Agassi phenomenon" is not really valid because he has played so few tournaments, has withdrawn so many, had to take shots for back and other body parts, and even at the T.M.C must withdraw.
So really, he played until 33 a full schedule, and in between he missed a few years, which makes him about the same (a little more) than those like sampras playing full schedules until 30/31
