I can't believe how this tournament happens in the format that it happens without addressing this loophole. You know in football leagues the last match of the season all teams play simultaneously. A more closer example would be the football world cup where the last 2 matches of a group are played simultaneously. Why does this not happen here?

On which court should the other match take place - or even other three if you want four matches at the same time?

Besides the fact that there is only one court, opposite to football, tennis matches have no fixed duration. Even if you'd start at the same time, one match would end earlier than the other. And even worse, players could have interest to artificially prolong their match to know the result of the other match.
