well, I would not say 2 close tiebrakers makes this match comfortable for Almagro. It was a VERY tight match during the first 2 sets and JJ had a small break in 2nd breaker but messed it up on his own serve, Almagro took advantage and JJ never recovered. I am not sure if that was due to mental or blisters.
The difference in those 1st 2 sets was Almagro exceptional serving and JJ making errors he should have converted.
