In 1988 AO surface was changed into Rebound Ace. Many players of that generations like Sampras, Becker, Goran, Krajicek and Rafter grew up watching Wimbledon on grass and US Open on fast HC so modelling there game according to it, they had advantage because AO was played on grass, not fast like Wimbledon but still grass.

Now there are two examples of Edberg and Lendl, while the former managed to win two titles AO on grass but not a single one on slow HC while Lendl won two titles on HC but not a single one on grass taking his tally of slam to 8 while Edberg ended up on 6.
So the hypothetical question is how slam numbers of Sampras, Edberg, Agassi, Becker, Goran and Lendl etc are affected if AO stayed on grass, let say till 2000.
