lol, agree with most of your comments but I think you are reaching here.
Although Sampras could hit a forehand and backhand from the back court, his style was to get to net. That is a S&V style. The same can be said about Rafter. He also was first and foremost a S&V. It was also how Sampras won his last Grand Slam tournament, getting to net. Sampras by far is first and foremost a S&V.
Federer on the other hand is clearly an all-court player.
