Well, I won from John but I lost from Bill.
No, I disagree. When "from" is introduced, it implies that something was gained, something changed hands, something was received.
"I won from John" is fine IF there was an exchange of money, title, etc. I can't think of a context in which "I lost from Bill" would work.
In most contexts I would expect to hear "I beat John and lost to Bill." (Did you win money from John or his title? Did you lose money or your title to Bill? Maybe, but nothing is implied.)
