The most exciting match in the last qualifications was the encounter between Belgium and Czech. Frédéric Caudron and Roland Forthomme were close to the elimination when the Czechs Martin Bohac and Radek Novak came back from 33-24 behind with a run of 7. They were 37-35 on the lead when Caudron and Forthomme excelled with a brilliant 5: two bankshots, a force follow and two rather normal shots.
