Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai might have been spotted in public after being absent from the public eye for several weeks. Peng appeared during a Beijing tennis tournament on Sunday. This event was sponsored by the China Open.

The 35-year-old former doubles champion could be seen wearing a dark blue blazer as she posed with guests at the Fila Kids Junior Tennis Challenger Finals. The former champion was last seen on November 2 and was absent since then.

At that time, she accused former vice-premier Zhang Gaoli of sexually assaulting her. Both of them had an on-and-off relationship. Unsurprisingly, the allegation had severe ramifications.

Peng’s social media post, where she had made the accusation in the first place, was deleted and China’s censored media ignored the story entirely. The questionable part is that it isn’t known whether the photo is part of a staged event and is Peng being held hostage.

Peng Shuai, a tennis player who “had an affair” with a Chinese official, had a dinner with friends at a store in Beijing The United States is also asking China to disclose its whereabouts as “unknown”, but it may be better to go to this famous restaurant and check it. I am amazed at the attitude of the West, who scatters lies with hope and speculation without interviewing.

This is because Peng has yet to speak publicly since the allegation. The Women’s Tennis Association previously stated that they will not play in China until Peng’s fate is clear.  Members of the group are skeptical that the picture of Peng posing was not of her own volition.

Novak Djokovic, the world’s #1 ranked tennis player spoke out about the situation, saying, “When I heard the story of Peng Shuai I was shocked. I hope she is well and that we can find her as soon as possible.” We will keep you updated on this ongoing story.
