Yes Nadal has beaten fed in his early 20's but except the Roland Garros wins, He's never beaten PEAK fed like the 2004-2006 (got bageled in the final of wimbledon actually first set in 2006)
He was 17-18 at 2004. Rafa I believe beat that peak Fed on a hard court as a teenager at 17. In case you didn't know.
