By that logic, Nadal would have offered no resistance to Kohlschreiber if they had met in Wimbledon last year.
Chardy played the match of his life against Del Potro, on the other side of things Delpo had a bad day. Nevertheless, Delpo was in superb form earlier against Mannarino and Becker. Had he survived Chardy, it's very possible he could have rediscovered that form against Murray. Not saying he would have won, but it would have been a tough match for both.
