The world was shocked when a Chinese tennis star made some extremely serious allegations against a former top Communist Party leader a few days ago. As soon as the star player revealed what happened to her, a lot of people started to worry for her safety.
The tennis star mentioned is Peng Shuai. The Chinese tennis star was ranked No. 1 in the world by the WTA in 2014. In fact, she is the first Chinese player to achieve this feat. Furthermore, in August 2011, she also reached number 14 in the singles chart.
“I’ve known Peng since she was 14 years old; we should all care”: Chris Evert
She made headlines after writing a rather lengthy post on social media and disappearing shortly after it appeared. In the post, Peng Shuai wrote that Zhang Gaoli, a former deputy prime minister and member of the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party, forced her to have sex about three years ago.
After the incident gained global attention, people became increasingly concerned about her safety. Former American tennis star Chris Evert also took to Twitter to express concern about Peng’s safety. Speaking of the accusations, she posted on Twitter, saying, “These accusations are very disturbing. I’ve known Peng since she was 14 years old; we should all care; this is serious; where is she? Is she safe? Any information will be appreciated. ”
The post in question was posted on Peng’s verified account on Weibo, a leading Chinese social media platform. The post was deleted very quickly and Peng’s account is no longer available. Moreover, it is not certain where Peng is, is she safe or not?
In the post, Peng wrote that Zhang and his wife arranged to play tennis in Beijing about three years ago and he then took her into a room at his home where she was assaulted. “I was so freaked out that afternoon, never thought this could happen,” the post said.
