DENPASAR, Indonesia, Sep 12 (Reuters) Daniela Hantuchova became the first big-name casualty at the Bali International when the fifth-seeded Slovakian slumped to a 7-5 6-2 first round defeat against Hungarian left-hander Melinda Czink today.

Hantuchova held the upper hand in the early stages to build a 5-2 lead before squandering three set points on Czink's serve.

The missed opportunities seemed to derail the Slovakian and she dropped her next two service games before Czink then held off a break point when leading 6-5 to serve out for the opening set.

Three breaks of serve at the start of the second set left Czink leading 2-1 and a fine backhand drive gave her a further break for a decisive 5-2 lead.
