Who is Peng Shuai? Where is Peng Shuai?— These questions have gripped the sports world and drawn attention from across the world. You must have come across the name over the past couple of days. Shuai, who is a Chinese tennis player reportedly disappeared from public view for weeks after she accused former senior Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexual assault in a post that was taken down minutes later. According to reports, it was the first time such a claim has been made against one of China’s senior political leaders. This promted a global chorus of concern for her safety. Old photos of the tennis star are doing rounds on the internet after the global outcry. Shuai is a two-time Grand Slam champion and former No.1 in doubles. Many top athletes including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal raised concerns over her safety. Almost as abruptly as she had vanished, the tennis star reappeared in public view. A steady stream of photos and videos purporting to show a smiling Shuai going about her life in Beijing surfaced on social media. There has also been a video call between Shuai and International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach, during which the Olympian insisted that she is “safe and well, living at her home in Beijing.” However, it has caused more worry— concerns about her freedoms and growing calls for a full investigation into her sexual assault allegations. People are not satisfied and they have expressed deep concern about her immediate safety.
