Peng Shuai the Chinese tennis player said to a Singapore newspaper that she never made any statement of being sexually harassed, regardless of writing a social media post of being forced by a renowned Communist Party official.

Peng says to the newspaper that she wants to clarify the fact that she never said or wrote that she has ever been sexually assaulted by anyone.

The reporter didn’t ask about her 2nd November post about what she has written in the post and why she even wrote that if she is not comfortable talking about that or maybe her social media account was hacked.

Peng was interviewed at a promotional event for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games which will begin from 4th February. She was on the observation deck of the facility with former NBA star Yao Ming and other Chinese sportsmen watching the freestyle ski competition.

After the entry of the accused Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli, Peng left the panel. All the snaps went viral on the internet and made an issue of concern for the safety of other fellow tennis players of the World Tennis Association.

After that Peng was seen standing beside the tennis court waving to her fans and signing tennis balls for the children.

It is a matter of concern that why Peng has with drawled what she has said before about the former politician Zhang.

Zhang Gaoli the party leader of Xi Jinping, a member of the Politburo Standing Committee until 2018, and a top lieutenant to the president. He hasn’t commented anything about the accusation of Peng.

Peng told that she has written her statement in Chinese and later it was translated into English but there was no difference of meaning in the two versions. World Tennis Association chief executive Steve Simon has said that they have to go through the legitimacy of the post, where everyone is concerned about her safety.

Simon is trying to carry out an inquiry for the accusation of Peng and the WTA contact with the former No. 1 ranked double players and owner of titles at Wimbledon and the French Open.

A lot of discussions is happening with the fact of the Winter Games in Beijing and the government is concerned about human rights abuses.

The IOC has given a different approach to the fact and said that they believe Peng is fine after the video chat they had with the top officials.
