We could consider this new rule but it's not like this sort of thing happens often so it would be very little demand for it.
In other events there are more leeway for the unexpected. IW and Miami are unusual in that you have to accurately predict all four QFs. If they had been played on the same day, which is more common, you can skip one altogether, just having to guess correctly one winner who will lose in the SF and ofc the two finalists to win.
Remember me? I said a few weeks ago same thing nobody listened. I even asked about a sceneraio where both picks got WO.
Again my problem with this is just one thing. If i picked Kei and or Berdych and we know what happened i wouldnt have a problem with loosing the game.
But for those who picked Rafa and Nole its unfair becuase those 2 will advance to next round.
I have been thinking about ways to get around this and adding a 3rd pick would be the easy way out but it could still happen.
This week in sf we dont have room to change. But in early rounds there is always.
Its not my fault the player i picked got a ticket to next round because the other guy pulled out.
