The Women’s Tennis Association has said it wants to speak privately with tennis player Peng Shuai after she gave an interview to a French news outlet that was overseen by a Chinese sports official.
WTA Chairman Steve Simon said in a statement that the “in-person interview does not alleviate any of our concerns about her initial post,” which detailed a rocky affair with a retired Chinese official. He called for “an opportunity for the WTA to meet with Peng — privately — to discuss her situation,” and reiterated the organization wants China to investigate her situation.
