Well yes but I was comparing Ferrer to Murray regarding how difficult of a SF opponent they are for Fed, it's obvious that Ferrer is the weaker link here, both Fed and Novak would prefer him to Murray in any slam except maybe FO (for Novak, because Ferrer can trouble him on clay).
In short, as things stand right now the toughness of Fed's draw depends on whether he'll:
-Draw Berdych in QF
-Draw Murray in SF
Not on his opponents in the first 4 rounds, if he's in decent form he'll cruise (relatively speaking) regardless.
