Neither of these matches mean anything. I think Federer would have done well with wood but his game would have to be revamped in my opinion.
I agree that those matches don't mean everything. However, the point is that there is no use speculating that a certain player wouldn't be as good on a faster grass as they adapted their game to the current conditions. Nobody knows how a certain player would adjust to new conditions.
