Tie-break criteria

In the event of a two way tie, the tie-breaker is the winner of the head to head match.

In the event of a three way tie (same match results), the tie-breaker steps are as follows:

  1. % of sets played that were won (2-1, 2-0, 1-2 = 5 wins in 8 sets or 62.5%)
  2. Point differential (points won minus points lost for the entire pool)

In a 3 way tie, if a team is eliminated based on the first criteria, the steps do not start over.
