Match point distribution
The following points will be awarded per match to each team
Tie breaking criteria
Teams even on points at the end of the Intercontinental
Round will be classified according to the number of
matches they have won, sets ratio and then points ratio,
changing from the previous system of using points ratio
before sets ratio. The following tie breaking criteria will be
applied one after the other until the tie has been broken:
Number of matches won.
Sets ratio. If the tie persists after as per the number
of matches won, the teams will be classified in descending
order by the quotient resulting from the division of the
number of all sets won by the number of all sets lost.
Points ratio. If there is still a tie after applying the
two criteria described above, teams will be classified
in descending order by the quotient resulting from the
division of all points scored by the total of points lost
during all sets.
If the tie continues, the priority will be given to the
team who won the last match between them.
When the tie in points ratio is between three or more
teams, a new classification of these teams in the terms of
point 2 and point 3 will be made taking into account only
the matches in which they were opposed to each other.
