Is Agassi the Connors of this generation?

Great returner, who is dangerous in a slam, the kinda guy you dont want to play in a night match at the US Open for example, but clearly is increasinlgy out of his league with bigger stronger players who beguile with all kinds of power and spin?
Think Conners vs Lendl.
It must kill Andre to lose to Jurgen 2 times in a row in straight sets.
Its one thing to be humbled by the likes of Federer, genius that he is and number one and all that. Everyone is getting spanked by him!
But clearly Andre needs a little more luck than normal to eek out a Slam victory these days.
But when the tour events also become a challenge like they appear to be, how long can your ego only deal with being considered the respected elder of the game that sells tickets?

Both are pricks, both outstanding returners and both have contributed to the game in their own particular ways.

Good points and lets hope Andre can reach the U.S. Open semis at age 39! ;)

Dont get me wrong I would love to see Agassi extend his career as long as he can stand it.
It's hard to see these losses though. The really hard ones are the losses to players whose games were molded after his own!
Hewitt, Coria etc.
