Who knows how good he would have been? Probably not as good as he was, of course. But from a young age he would have worked on being, say, a power baseliner. And thus developed his skill in that manner.

The real answer is..we do not know. Certainly there are players I know of who 'converted' from serve and volleyers to baseliners, with success. And, of course, vice-versa. But not everybody can. Could Pete Sampras have done so? Maybe, maybe not. Nobody knows, however.
