Naomi Osaka speaks out on Peng Shuai’s disappearance

Tennis champion Naomi Osaka has joined a growing number of athletes and organizations voicing concerns over the safety and whereabouts of Chinese tennis star Péng Shuài 彭帅, who has not been heard from for about two weeks since detailing sexual abuse allegations against a retired high-ranking official from the Chinese government.

On Tuesday, the Japanese superstar, who has won four Grand Slam singles titles, took to Twitter to raise awareness about the issue. “Not sure if you’ve been following the news, but I was recently informed of a fellow tennis player that has gone missing shortly after revealing that she has been sexually abused,” she wrote, using the hashtag #WhereisPengShuai, which has been widely circulated on social media in the past week.
