Fourth seed Renatto Sebbi, Shaban Lwanga (7) and Chris Mutebi (6)were ejected by unseeded players. Hard fighting Sebbi who has been out of action for close to a year was shown the exit by Patrick Olobo 6-4, 7-6. Patrick Shirzadi defeated Lwanga 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the longest match so far that lasted three hours while Mutebi also fell to Stephen Mbazira 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 in a highly contested encounter. The favourites John Oduke and Kenyan Norbert Oduor easily advanced into the quarterfinals. Oduke walked over Alvin Nzaro while champion Oduor made easy work of Ronald Senyanja 6-0, 6-2. In the ladies singes defending champion Janet Magona defeated Hellen Kyeyune to storm the quarterfinals. Ends.
