I think there's no reason to explain why virtual game tournaments don't have this rule.

Kind regards,

Okay, apparantly there's a need. A virtual tour is very different, because

  1. it doesn't have an audience (who paid money to watch tennis),
  2. the players didn't sign contracts,
  3. there are no bets on the matches,
  4. has no chair umpire / supervisor,
  5. there's no real money behind it,
  6. Random Luck, arbitrary walkovers etc. wouldn't be allowed,
  7. etc. pp. ...

Kind regards,
Heinrich von Westphalen.

Actually, there is/have been.

It's about respect, that tops all the reasons Heinrich listed. One can very much realize your opponent isn't trying.

Tour issues by PM or Skype.
If you don't add me nor send me a PM, you might see your chances reduced. Inform me about anything that might have went on with your matches BEFORE deadlines, otherwise, decisions won't be changed.

That's what I am talking...even though it is impossible to strictly apply the rule due to the impossibility of having an umpire, even bystanders can judge that some of the weird results or early retirement in recent times are very much against the ideal of sportsmanship. The impossibility of an umpire isn't an excuse...players should be able to self-regulate themselves if they respect their opponents...
