Eight seed Seppi was on the wrong end of a three-set scoreline as he was beaten 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 by Hugo Dellien from Bolivia.

Wildcard Janko Tipsarevic is up next for Dellien as the Serb advanced with a 7-5, 7-5 victory over Peter Gojowczyk from Germany.

Romanian Albot won two tie-breakers against Italian qualifier Lorenzo Sonego and the 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-4) victory earned him a clash against Argentine Juan Igancio Londero while Taro Daniel beat Bernabe Zapata 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.
