The Pinoy tandem of Roberto Gomez and Jeff De Luna failed to advance to the World Cup of Pool semi-finals after losing to Estonia at the Stadium MK, Milton Keynes in England Thursday (Friday in Manila).

After stunning the American pair of Billy Thorpe and Skyler Woodward, 7-5, team Philippines fell to Estonian partners Denis Grabe and Mark Magi, 9-4.

After trailing the Estonians, 6-1, Gomez and De Luna managed to steal the rack to cut the deficit to 6-2.

Estonia took the next rack and the Philippines grabbed two more in an effort to close the gap, 7-4. But that was the closest Gomez and De Luna could get.

Estonia will next face Germany in the semifinals.

Germany eliminated Denmark from the competition, 9-5.
