Instead of a Walkover, why not have the player who lost in the previous round to the forfeiter play the match instead. That way a match will still be played, the spectators will still be able to watch tennis, and no one will be given an unfair advantage from not having to play a round. I am upset because I was looking forward to the Fed match today. I'm sure Lee, the guy who lost to Pavel the previous round, would love a chance to play Fed. Now we may have to settle for a stupid mixed doubles match. It is ridiculous. The only problem is a player would have to stay around for a couple more days when they lose if they want the opportunity to play again. But I think most players would agree to this idea.
