Peng ShuaiHis disappearance has been the focus of talk around the tennis circuit for nearly a month. The Chinese tennis star mysteriously disappeared after she made several serious sex allegations against a prominent leader of the Chinese Communist Party.

A day ago, WTA announced that they will stop competing in China later Peng’s disappearance. But in contrast to that, the ATP made a very vague statement about the same thing. They do not announce the suspension but insist on open direct communication between players and WTA

“The situation involving Peng Shuai continues to raise serious concerns inside and outside of our sports field. Answers to those concerns have so far been lacking. We are once again calling for an open line of direct communication between the player and the WTA to establish a clearer picture of her situation,” statement read.

“We know that sport can have a positive effect on society and generally believe that a global presence gives us the best opportunity to create opportunity and make an impact. We will continue to consult with members and monitor any developments as this matter evolves.”

Weak statement from ATP?

This statement was called ‘weak’ by many because it made no sense against the Chinese regime. It is important to note that ATP has various secondary sponsors from China so there has also been speculation before that ATP will not speak against China. In fact, the whole statement doesn’t even have the word ‘China’ in it.

Unlike the ATP, the WTA has suspended events from China until further notice. “Therefore, and with the full support of the WTA Board of Directors, I announce the immediate suspension of all WTA tournaments in China, including Hong Kong.” WTA President Steve Simon speak.
