Question "Really Outplayed But Still Won"

And I don't mean winning 2 sets after getting bageled (could just be the player conserved energy and "measured the lines" in the first set). I mean where somebody was simply Outplayed Ova-all (probably reflected in W/UE stats and total points won; though "quality of shots" matters too, and isn't measured) but still won the match. (Not on an injury To The opponent, BTW).

I thought in the first set last year of the J&S cup final between Muaresmo and Venus, that Amelie really should have won the first set, and was actually playing better than venus, i know Ameie still won that match when venus retired, but i thought she should have really got the 1set not the second.

I play matches like this all the time. I play better than my opponent but he (sometimes "she") will just frame a drop shot or just throw up so stupid lob something...lucky mofos!
