In a statement on Saturday posted on Twitter, Wozniacki said the tournament did nothing to prevent the abuse.

Wozniacki's opponent, Puig, is from Puerto Rico, and there is a large population of Puerto Ricans in Miami.

"The security of the players is our No. 1 priority", Blake said.

Caroline Wozniacki lost in the Miami Open Friday night, but the biggest losers may have been in the crowd.

Wozniacki was surprisingly beaten 0-6 6-4 6-4 by the Olympic champion in the second round, the second seed denied a chance to lift the title for a first time.

'Meanwhile security and staff did nothing to prevent this and even accepted this to take place. They never witnessed, nor were they notified of any specific threats made to players or their families.

Lee also took to Twitter to call for the Miami Open to do something about the "disgusting atmosphere".

The 27-year-old Wozniacki won her first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open earlier this year, and is now ranked No. 2 in the world.

But veteran player Venus Williams survived a scare to book her third round spot.

In her tweet, Wozniacki added: "When certain lines are crossed, it makes tennis miserable for both competitors".

'I hope the Miami Open takes this seriously because it is a awful example to set for the next generation of tennis players and fans'.
