Phil Taylor goes down 4-0 in his quarterfinal against the Finn Aulis Nissinen. And Alan Warriner also loses his match against Welshman Martin Phillips 4-2. It was only John "Old Stoneface" Lowe who qualified for the semi-finals by beating Dutchman Bert Vlaardingerbroek 4-2.

In the semi-finals Martin Phillips defeated Aulis Nissinen 4-1 and Jamie Harvey could not keep the English captain from the final he lost with the same score line. In an exciting final Martin Phillips eventually had to settle for silver. John Lowe beat him 6-4 thus winning the singles title for the second time.
