Peng Shuai missing: WTA chief announces decision to suspend tournaments in China

The Daily Mirror says The WTA has suspended all its tournaments in China over the country’s handling of sexual assault allegations made by tennis star Peng Shuai and its failure to provide adequate proof of her safety in the weeks since.

Announcing the decision, chairman Steve Simon said on Wednesday that he refuses to put “our players and staff at risk” by holding competitions in the Asian country.

Peng went missing for more than two weeks after a post from her account on social media site Weibo accused Zhang Gaoli, China’s former vice-premier, of sexual assault.
