An easy win is 6-2,6-2,6-2. Having to come back from 2 sets down is not an easy win, even if your opponent gives you the opening by choking. As wins go, that's a hard win. If Haas hadn't choked, Roger wouldn't have had a difficult win - he'd have had a loss.

I repeat: how is it easier when your opponents are actually playing well enough to beat you?
