The 23-year-old said abuse online had become a "usual occurrence" and she was often targeted by gamblers who had lost money on her matches.

After her second round win over Daniela Huntuchova , Watson said she no longer checks whether she is being abused online because it happened so regularly in the past.

"It's become such a usual occurrence that it doesn't really mean much to me,'' she said.

"Those people, they've got no life. They're just kind of cowards thinking they can say whatever they want on the Internet. They don't understand that we're just people at the end of the day."
