When there is a rain (ideas on features ST)

Picks on QF in Toronto it was necessary to do at not played matches R16.
Kamui010 Has made it so:
Day 5:
If Tipsarevic defeats Cilic, I pick him.
If Cilic wins, I pick in the following way:
-If Gasquet defeats Berdych, I pick the winner of Monaco/Fish.
-If Berdych defeats Gasquet, I pick Berdych.

Neatly and clearly. But lack that is not present BU. If Tipsarevic will leave in SF without game (w/o), then No Pick :(
Imho, it was possible to secure itself in the next way:
Day 5 : Tipsarevic
BU : Berdych
BU2 : Monaco/Fish
At whom other opinion?

You suggestion is not entirely OK.

The meaning of BU: Berdych is : only if Tipsarevic vs Cilic gets canceld, Berdych is a valid pick.

One cannot use the BU pick, in cases of wrong main pick ( in this case,when Cilic wins.)

The situation above was when we were picking for Friday(the QF) but the Thursday round 3 matches weren't complete yet. The Friday pick turned out to be Tipsarevic vs. Granollers, so picking Tipsarevic for Friday would have been invalid if he had lost to Cilic friday morning(the thursday pick), so yeah in that case the BU would have been used.:)

R16: Berdych def. Gasquet, Fish def. Monaco.
If Granollers def. Tipsarevic then BU2 Fish would have been used! :)

Day6: Federer
BU: Djokovic
Federer has won in a semifinal. But the final pick on Djokovic has not been made. Toooom has not lost points because Djokovic has lost. But could win!

To not lose points in vain, it is possible to do with the semifinal pick on last day.
Day6: Federer
BU: Djokovic

Day7: Djokovic/Del Potro

yes, if he wanted to. You are allowed to submit picks for future days early if you're not going to be able to.
