Women’s Tennis Association suspends all tournaments in China amid Peng Shuai safety concerns

China opposes the “politicisation of sport” , said their foreign ministry spokesperson today, following the Women’s Tennis Association decision to pull out of all tournaments in the country.

The WTA “boycott” was prompted by concerns for Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai, who disappeared last month after accusing a Chinese official of sexual assault.
