Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai Reappeared after weeks of MIA – so it appears.
Peng was front and center at the Beijing Tennis Tournament on Sunday … an event sponsored by the China Open.
35-year-old former doubles champion Phila Kids Jr. is wearing a dark blue blazer while posing with guests in the final of the Tennis Challenger.
The photo was posted on the WeChat page of org.
Peng has not been seen since November 2 when he accused the former deputy Zhang Gauli Sexual assault on her. Had a back-to-back relationship in 2 years.
The allegation had immediate consequences … Peng’s social media post – where he made the allegation – has been deleted and the Chinese censored media has ignored the story.
What is unclear… is the photo part of the stage show and whether Peng is held hostage. He has not been free and has not spoken since he was charged.
Women’s Tennis Ass’n has made it clear… they won’t play in China until Peng’s future is clear. Members of the group are skeptical that the film shows that Peng is giving a pose of his own free will.
Other photos have also appeared … which show that Peng is having dinner on Saturday night at a Beijing restaurant.
Naomi Osaka And Novak Djokovic Peng has talked about loss.
Naomi said, “Hey everyone, I’m not sure if you’ve been following the news. But I was recently told that a fellow tennis player was abused shortly after it was revealed that she was sexually abused.”
“Censorship is never right at any cost. I hope Peng Shuai and her family are safe and okay. I’m shocked by the current situation and I’m sending love and lighting her way. #Whereispengshuai”
The world’s # 1 ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic also said, “I was shocked when I heard Peng Shuai’s story. She’s healthy and I hope we can find her as soon as possible.”
