During/after 1999 - Steffi taught him how to play properly and not clown around.

In terms of individual year

1994-95 was his bully-flashy-dominant form, but 1999-2000 was his best Grand Slam stretch 4 finals 3 wins

Agassi had insane hand-eye coordination and was the purest striker of the ball out of all of these players probably. He's in a league of his own on that front perhaps! Or maybe Connors too, and maybe some super old timers I have no clue about.


but they were/are not so attractive,


Andre is most nice ATP player ever

He stayed good all the way till the end as he wasn't the type of player that really relied on athleticism to a huge degree so when he lost a step it didn't matter as much. Although the last few years he was less consistent gamewise even if he could show his A game for a match, or a few sets here and there.

Re: During what time period did agassi play his best tennis?

95 was his peak for sure.

But 99 to 05 was his consistently high level of play.

Any thoughts?
Just checked w/l, and 1995 is the best year while 1999 comes second tied with 1998.
And yes, I also think between 1999-2001 was a great period.

1995 was his highest level I think, but you're right, he was consistently good 1999-03 in a way he wasn't at any other comparable period.
