Players are in final tiebreak order. Tiebreak scores are indicated by Brks 1 (Solkoff), Brks 2(Modified Median), & Brks 3(Cumulative). The secondary tiebreaking system is only used if the Solkoff scores do not break the tie. The 3rd tiebreaking system is only used if the first 2 tiebreaking systems fail to break the tie.
