Guga's BH is better overall shot than Fed's but by a smaller margin than his BH being better for handling high balls off that side.

With Nadal's main tactic being nullified (to a degree anyway), Guga's advantage in power (though it's slight IMO, Nadal's FH is a monster) and serve would be more pronounced IMO than in Fed's match-up against Nadal on clay.
Guga had slightly better bh but fed's fh is out of this world. Don't forget fed moves lot better as well.
