LOL. Yes, a lot of us probably would. I'm not saying I/we would necessarily start throwing matches, but I'm just as happy winning a match 7-5, 7-5 as I am winning a match 6-0, 6-0. The net result to me would be the same, yet those two scores would be treated far differently by the computer. I'm sure this is exactly why the USTA keeps dynamic ratings secret---so that players can't help themselves in this way.
