Monica Puig says she didn't hear any crowd's threats to Wozniacki

After her win in the third round against Maria Sakkari, Monica Puig spoke about the controversy that followed her second-round win over world no. 2 Caroline Wozniacki. Wozniacki had complained on social media about fans wishing death to her parents.

Puig wasn´t aware of it while the match was happening. ´I didn’t hear anything,´ the world no. 82 admitted. ´The crowd was very emotional and very excited the previous night. But I can’t say. I didn’t hear anything.´ Puig also spoke about her own career.

In 2016 she won the gold medal at the Rio Olympics, then she didn´t meet the expectations set. ´I was only 22-years-old when it happened, still pretty young to win something so huge,´ she said recalling that time.

´So I didn’t really know how to handle the opportunity that came my way, and the moment itself. It took me a while to settle in. It’s a lot about maturity. I feel like I’ve matured so much in the past year and a half.

I’m just really happy where I am, what that moment gave me. I’m just ready to move forward and continue to grow as a tennis player and as a person.´ ALSO READ: Here is what Rafael Nadal needs to do to retain No. 1 ranking position
