Can you really cheer on when you know that everything is long-over? And when you see tight moments... That's just plain masochism if you don't run and check how it ended... Such little tortures are only 'pleasurable' live, or to be exact, right after it ended well.
If i watch a tape i watch it to see "how'd he lose?" or "How'd he win"?
Or is it just me?
I always look ahead when i read a book... :thinks:
LOL. I try to avoid any information source as much as possible when I tape a match. Last week I taped Amelie vs Kim in the morning after i saw the first set, I left school in the beginning of the afternoon and had to go to the courthouse and wanted to watch the rest in the evening. So i did my best not to listen to the radio in the bus, cuz i really didn't want to know !
Everytime I tape a match and plan to watch it later I like to watch it as if it were live.
Except maybe when it's a Marat match. It's such a rollercoaster that it's good for my brain and my heart to know the score already
