WTA Pulls Events From China

Internationally ranked women’s tennis player Peng Shuai, who is from China, has mostly disappeared from public view since she accused a highly ranked government and Communist Party official of sexual assault. The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) has raised concerns about the safety and well-being of one of it’s players and has pressed the Chinese government to be more forthcoming.

China has continued to be tight-lipped and there is concern that Peng is being persecuted for her accusations. So the WTA has announced it will pull events from China, as a result.

Lebron James and the NBA–take note.
