I think its a terrible idea (agreeing with Hail venus)......it just opens up a pandora's box of complications. What if we had this same scenario at say a big event like IW or Miami ....and Monica beat Venus in the final ..thenwho would recive the finalist paycheck ....Venus for losing in the final or jelena for beating monica to reach the final ..what if Monica for some reason is unable to play the final do we then have a rematch of venus amelie to determine the tournament winner, what justification do you have to restrict this only to the later rounds. Sponsoring a
tennis tournament is a buisness venture and like all other buisness venture there are risks involved ..looking at the total number of tournaments played over the course of a year and the relatively few in which finals are not played ..i'd say those risks are more than acceptable..besides which if you had these rules Jelena would simply walk out on court and recieve serve then retire do you think if she needed the points to say become number 1 or be seeded at some other event she would accept a fraction of the points that are rightfully hers.

Just to demonstrate the foolishness of this idea ..you can just go back to the year end championships and add 1 or 2 very plausible but hypothetical scenarios ...remeber that Lindsay ended the year no1 buy beating Kim in the SF take away any of lindsay's points and caprati who lost ealier would be no 1. Imagine for an instance if venus had played the tournaments she was to play and was also in contention for the number 1 (very plausible)....and it was venus who lost to linds in the Sf thus ending her hopes of ending the year no1 ..then you turn round the next day and allow venus to play serena for the title and points since Linds is injured and she now becomes no1 beating Serena ..is there really anybody who can't see (regardless of who your a fan of ) the problems this would cause.
