The tennis world is outraged over the latest twist in a star player’s complaint of assault and abrupt disappearance from public life.
So a ranked Chinese tennis player once had an affair with a former Vice Premier high up in the Party. Not sure of their history, but at some time after the affair ended, she was at his house for a tennis lesson (even met the wife) but afterwards she claims she was raped. She publicly accuses her attacker on Chinese social media, and pretty soon afterwards she disappears and her posts are scrubbed.
Now everyone wants to know, where is Peng Shuai? Even Biden sees an opportunity to play tough guy with China and seems to be calling for a boycott of the Olympics. Should athletes pull out of the Winter Games until we know that she’s safe?
