PTPA supports independent evidence that can prove Peng Shuai’s safety and location »FirstSportz
Peng Shuai, the former world No. 1 doubles tennis player from China caused a stir recently when she made a number of serious accusations against the former top leader of the Communist Party of China. She made the allegation through a social media post that was taken down by Chinese authorities.
Not only that, her account on the Weibo social network also disappeared immediately. The Chinese government is known for pushing problems under the rug, especially when the top government leaders are in question. This time, the Chinese are taking it one step further.
“Nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and well-being of our players”: PTPA
Not only has Peng’s account and posts gone, but her whereabouts are also unknown. A lot of people are concerned about her health. Several tennis stars came to her support. However, Chinese authorities have also begun censoring their accounts.
Recently, it was reported that Naomi Osaka’s Weibo account was suspended after she posted a favorable post for Peng. Considering how things are going, the Professional Tennis Players’ Association has advocated the release of independent evidence that can confirm Peng’s location and state of health.
“Nothing is more important to us than the health, safety and well-being of our players,The PTPA statement reads. The statement went on to add that relevant action will be taken if evidence is not provided. Canadian tennis star Vasek Pospisil shared the PTPA’s statement on Twitter.
Apparently, a letter was released supposedly written by Peng which claims that the content published by the WTA regarding her is untrue. “About the news recently released on the official WTA website, the content has not been confirmed or verified by me and it was released without my consent,” the letter read. However, everyone doubts the authenticity of the letter, and rightfully so.
