My guess is that the OP's chip shots were landing in no man's land, so that's where the opponent had to play them from. Hitting a winning passing shot or an effective offensive lob off a good skidding approach shot that stays real low and the chipper is quick and fast and is approaching correctly (ie., optimal court position) isn't easy.
Anyway, good for the 4.0 OP for playing smart and doing what was necessary to win, and too bad for the sour grapes 4.5 opponent for not adequately adjusting to the OP's change in tactics.
