One shot doesn't make him the better player. People are making this very easy for themselves. Federer is the GOAT and therefore he must have a better BH than a player who has never even been to a slam final...
Gasquet's BH is better. Federer's BH is the weakest part of his game. Well at least in his prime. These days the lack of speed might become the bigger issue. How early they hit the ball has nothing to do with the stroke itself.
