So in short what you want to say is Murray > Agassi and Sampras right

Interestingly, the only player to have beaten each of Big 3 and Murray in Grand Slam play is Tsonga, who happens to be the closest we have to a serve & volleyer among the top players today. And I'm pretty sure Sampras's game was a few notches above Tsonga's to put it mildly...
