Of course we don't know - so don't use ludicrous logic like: because Federer played poorly against Berdych, Murray would have had a good shot at him if they'd faced each other. Ergo: If Federer had played better and beaten Berdych, he would have likely been playing better than that match - so it's spurious to even use it as an indication of form going into a hypothetical match-up which never happened.

Unless he backs it up it will go down in history as a fluke almost surely according to Talk Tennis logic.
