I disagree

Their backhands for example are completely different.

Ons is more like the next (lesser) Barty.
They have a very similar game and strokes:
The bombing serve and forehand (their biggest weapons), the ugly two-handed backhand, the backhand slice, the strong net game, smart.
(Even the body type is similar and they have the same height too.)

Barty moves a lot better than Ons (Ash moves light-footed and Ons not as light-footed).

From the current WTA players Barty and Muchova are the most like Federer.

Ons is more like [...] Barty.
They have a very similar game and strokes:
They were occasional doubles partners as juniors. Jabeur won the French open in 2011 and Barty won Wimbledon a month later.

In fact, Jabeur's last ever title as a junior, the Roehampton doubles just before Wimbledon, was partnering Barty.

Barty/Muchova is a more appropriate comparison to Federer.

Jabeur and Andreescu are somewhat similar with similar kinds of body types, though Jabeur slaps the FH more and her BH is more slice. Not sure TBH, Ons is fairly unique. I like the Baggy comparison.
