Peng Shuai: Doubt cast on email from Chinese tennis star
BBC Sport says The head of the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) has cast doubt on an email released by Chinese state media attributed to tennis player Peng Shuai.
Steve Simon, chairman of the WTA, said in a statement he had a “hard time believing” the email was written by Ms Peng or on her behalf.
One of China’s biggest sporting stars, she has not been heard from since she made sexual assault allegations against a top Chinese official.
The email was shared on Wednesday.
