BEIJING — 

What began as a confrontation between feminism and authoritarianism within China has evolved into a wider sports and human rights showdown as the tennis world takes a stand for Peng Shuai, a Chinese player who accused a Communist Party leader of sexual abuse and has since vanished from public view.

It is a case that touches on the most sensitive topic in China: abuse of power by Communist Party leaders. It also comes as Beijing prepares to host the Winter Olympics in February amid international calls for a boycott over China’s human rights violations.

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Peng Shuai – the Chinese professional tennis player not seen in public since she accused a former top government official of sexual assault – purportedly sent an email claiming she was safe and that the allegation was false, a message that only amplified concerns about her safety and demands for information about her well-being and whereabouts.

 

So far, those calls have been met by silence.

 

Chinese officials have said nothing publicly since the accusation about two weeks ago by Grand Slam doubles champion Peng Shuai that she was sexually assaulted. The first #MeToo case to reach the political realm in China has not been reported by the domestic media and online discussion of it has been highly censored.

Steve Simon, the chairman and CEO of the Women’s Tennis Association, questioned the authenticity of what Chinese state media said was an email intended for him in which Peng says she is safe and that the assault allegation is untrue. It was posted Thursday by CGTN, the international arm of Chinese state broadcaster CCTV.

“I have a hard time believing that Peng Shuai actually wrote the email we received or believes what is being attributed to her,” Simon wrote.

The statement, he added, “only raises my concerns as to her safety and whereabouts.”

Simon has demanded a full investigation, and the WTA said it is prepared to pull tournaments out of the country if it doesn’t get an appropriate response. Top players including Naomi Osaka and Novak Djokovic have spoken out, and the hashtag WhereisPengShuai is trending online.

WTA boss threatens to pull out of China over Peng Shuai

The head of the Women's Tennis Association says that he is willing to pull tournaments out of China if tennis star Peng Shuai remains unaccounted for and her sexual assault allegations not investigated.

Peng, a former Wimbledon and French Open doubles champion, alleged on Chinese social media earlier this month that former vice-premier Zhang Gaoli had "forced" her into sex during a long-term on-off relationship.

The claims were quickly scrubbed from the Twitter-like Weibo platform and the 35-year-old has not been seen since, drawing mounting concern over her wellbeing.

 

Since then the WTA, the top world body for women's tennis, has called for proof that she is safe and a growing number of tennis stars have been drawing attention to Peng's case, including Naomi Osaka, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams.

WTA boss Steve Simon told CNN that he is willing to lose hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of business in the lucrative China market to ensure Peng's safety.

"We're definitely willing to pull our business and deal with all the complications that come with it," Simon said.

"Because this is certainly, this is bigger than the business."

"Women need to be respected and not censored," he added.

Pressure has been growing on Chinese authorities to clarify the status and safety of Peng, but Beijing has remained silent on her fate.

China's state-run CGTN this week published a screenshot on Twitter of what it said was an email written by Peng to Simon and other WTA officials.

In the email, Peng purportedly claims that her earlier accusations are "not true" and says she is "resting at home and everything is fine".

But doubts were quickly flagged about the awkward language used in the purported email from Peng, which Twitter users noted had a cursor visible in the screenshot posted by CGTN.

 

Simon said that he was struggling to believe the email was authentic and said it was a "staged statement of some type".

 

"Whether she was coerced into writing it, someone wrote it for her, we don't know," Simon told CNN.

"But at this point I don't think there's any validity in it and we won't be comfortable until we have a chance to speak with her.

"Missing" Chinese Tennis Star Emerges At Beijing Tournament After Sex Assault Allegations Against Top Communist Officialteaser image

Any news or reports within China of Peng's allegations have been blocked by state censors...

SUN NOV 21, AT 4:55 PM

 

This weekend the international Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) stepped up efforts to locate and contact the Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai, who was widely reported in Western press as "missing" earlier this month, shortly after she made shocking allegations against top ranking Chinese government official, vice premier Zhang Gaoli, saying in a now-deleted social media post she was subject of sexual assault and abuse by the top Communist official.

 

Her allegations were posted on Nov.2, after which she wasn't seen or heard from in public since, raising the alarm for the WTA, which wasn't able to contact her. CNN reported the following as concerns over here whereabouts and safety spread: "A Chinese tennis star's explosive #MeToo allegation against a former state leader has been muffled by blanket censorship, with authorities racing to wipe out any mention of a politically sensitive scandal that has reverberated across the Chinese internet."
