Scepticism as Peng Shuai letter emerges claiming ‘everything is fine’

The Guardian says the head of the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) has said he is now even more concerned for the welfare of Peng Shuai after Chinese state media published a letter purportedly from the Chinese player.

Peng, a former world doubles No 1, has not been heard from publicly since she alleged on social media that a former vice-premier of China, Zhang Gaoli, had sexually assaulted her.

The 2 November post on China’s Twitter-like Weibo was removed within half an hour and censors blocked numerous related terms including “tennis”, but the claims still went viral. There has since been mounting concern for Peng’s welfare, with Naomi Osaka among tennis stars and others calling for answers.
