Naomi Osaka is shocked to hear about Peng Shuai, said- suppressing voice is not right at any cost


Naomi Osaka on Peng Shuai: Tennis star Naomi Osaka says she is shocked to hear of fellow player Peng Shuai who has gone missing after sexual harassment allegations against a former top government official in China. Japan’s former world number one and four-time Grand Slam champion Osaka posted on social media on Wednesday, asking where is Peng Shuai?

Where is Peng Shuai? With the hashtag, Osaka wrote on Twitter, “I don’t know if your eyes are on the news but recently I was informed about a teammate who disappeared shortly after revealing her sexual assault.” It is not right at any cost to suppress the voice.

Naomi’s message to Peng Shuai

Osaka, 24, who hasn’t played at Tour-level events since her title-defense campaign ended in a third-round loss at the US Open in September, expressed hope that Peng and her family would be “safe and well”. Osaka wrote, ‘I am shocked about the current situation. I am sending a ray of love and hope for her.

Top players, including world number one Novak Djokovic, and the organizers of the women’s and men’s professional tennis tours are calling on the WTA and the ATP to investigate the two-time Grand Slam champion’s allegations. Peng wrote in a lengthy post on social media earlier this month that a former deputy prime minister forced her to have sex despite persistent denials.

The post has been removed from Peng’s confirmed account on China’s major social media platform Weibo, and China’s entirely state-controlled media has suppressed all news on the issue. Peng, thirty-five, wrote that Zheng Gaoli, a former deputy prime minister and member of the ruling Communist Party, had forced her to have sex three years ago, despite repeated denials after a round of tennis. Zheng’s wife was guarding the door during this incident. Peng also wrote in his post that even seven years ago, they had a sexual relationship.
