There's almost always at least one result I really can't see coming, which in a game like this is enough to end title aspirations.
As for this very bizarre situation in the SFs, perhaps a rule whereby a player progresses if both his first pick and backup don't get to play due to withdraws? It's pretty unlucky for a player to lose in a situation where both his pick and backup don't take to the court, I mean for all intents and purposes his picks didn't really lose.
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.
