It’s been almost a week since we’ve heard about Peng Shuai. The Chinese tennis player mysteriously disappeared a few days ago after she made some serious sexual allegations against a prominent leader of the Chinese Communist Party. Ever since then, fans have took to social media to question the Chinese regime.

Tennis organizations, including the ATP, WTA and PTPA too have joined hands and asked the question- Where is Peng Shuai? Till date, there is no solid evidence about the whereabouts of Peng. The Chinese organizations issued a statement a day ago assuring the Shuai is safe but that wasn’t bought well.

Latest, Andy Murray took to twitter to raise the questions about her whereabouts and said that Barbora Krejcikova‘s speech after the WTA Finals triumph is a ray of hope everybody needed.

“Female tennis player Peng Shuai whereabouts currently unknown after making Sexual abuse allegations against Chinese government official. This speech gives us a reminder and some hope that things can change in the future,” Murray wrote.

Krejcikova addressed the issue of Czecho-Slovak separation in her speech. She put light on the fact that many people suffered during the harsh separation and thousands had to relocate- including legendary Martina Navratilova, who was present in the ceremony and had tears in her eyes. Krejcikova concluded by saying that even the darkest days pass- citing the example of current Czech Republic.
