Tennis great Martina Navratilova has condemned as “Pathetic” the Australian Open’s decision to stop fans wearing ‘Where is Peng Shuai?’ T-shirts, accusing Tennis Australia of “Capitulating” to China.
The governing body stood by its rationale on Sunday and stated Peng’s “Safety is our primary concern” and continued to work with the Women’s Tennis Association to “Seek more clarity” on the Chinese star’s wellbeing almost three months after she accused a senior Chinese official of sexual assault and then virtually disappeared from public life.
A fundraising page to raise money to print more ‘Where is Peng Shuai?’ T-shirts to be handed out for free during the women’s final has reached more than $12,000 in two days.
