Oh I wasn't saying it was a bad call, just the nature of the point and the debate about Berdych not being terribly affected in reaching the ball it could have been a turning point had Murray handled it badly, especially since he then lost the replayed point and lost his break advantage.
Think the minute the wind started it was only a matter of time before Murray dominated, he has that versatile approach in his game which allows him to attack/defend/move the ball around and his slice shots were particularly effective in the 2nd set. Compare that to Berdych who is largely relient on the serve and his power game and who lacks that all round game like Murray possesses, and his chances diminished the more the wind played a factor.
Credit to him though for finding his game again in the middle of the 4th set, Murray did well to close it out because anything could have happened had Berdych turned the set around.
