There is much wisdom in your analysis. It seems as if one's style of play is related to one's personality and therefore not easy to change, maybe because of an inner (even not consciuos) reluctance.

You're right !!!
But not because he played more volleys. Volleying is not "unnatural" for Roger in the way federer express gave his examples, so I don't think it will be detrimental for his game. On the contrary, it is another register he can pull if necessary, even on clay.
