Marion Bartoli was the major casualty on the second day of the Warsaw Open.

The fourth-seeded Frenchwoman succumbed to a first-round defeat at the hands of Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic.

Bartoli made a strong start under grey skies in the Polish capital but her unseeded opponent fought back to seal a 4-6 6-1 6-2 triumph.

Eighth-seeded Melanie Oudin of the United States also slumped to an early exit as she was swept aside 6-0 6-2 by Slovakia’s Magdalena Rybarikova.

Seeded Chinese duo Li Na and Zheng Jie both avoided upsets as they moved into the second round.

Third seed Li thumped Ioana Raluca Olaru of Romania 7-6 (7/4) 6-0 while Zheng, the fifth seed, had a harder time of it as she ousted Olga Govortsova of Belarus 6-1 5-7 7-5.

Sara Errani, Timea Bacsinszky, Polona Hercog, Tathiana Garbin, Greta Arn, Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, Tsvetana Pironkova and Katarzyna Piter also progressed to the second round after wins on Tuesday.
