Atp World tour final Semifinal :

A beat B

C beat D

final : A vs C

If C retired, then they should arrange match for A vs D in final, but A will decalred as champion, can we change that rules ?

Because if any of the top 8 seeds retired , then 9th and 10th ranking players will play round robin match.....

No, it’s the same as in a knockout format tournament then. Who loses is out, and rightfully so, no matter what his conqueror does after that.
The WTF system is screwed up enough as it is, the last thing the event would need is to completely break with tradition and make a mess by having losing semifinalists play the finale.
