While everybody thought the match would be over soon, Thehu committed several easy mistakes which brought Specchia back into the match. The Swiss fought his way back into the match and suddenly the score was 92:91 for Thehu only with 9 balls remaining on the table. Specchia missed a relatively easy 1-ball in a decisive moment.
