Peng Shuai: WTA says ‘great concern’ that they haven’t been able to reach tennis player

Women’s tennis boss Steve Simon says there’s ‘great concern’ over Peng Shuai with the organisation admitting they’ve done everything to track down the tennis player but to no avail.

Fears are growing over the welfare of tennis player Peng Shuai after Chinese state media published a letter attributed to her and social media posts about her sexual assault allegations were reportedly blocked.
