Other casualties in the second round were Guy Forget, Michael Stich, and Goran Ivanišević

In the third round, only one seed, Petr Korda, lost to an unseeded player; however, seeded players Richard Krajicek and Ivan Lendl lost to fellow seeds Andrei Medvedev and Sergi Bruguera respectively. A qualifier managed to advance to the final eight. The quarter final draw was:
