Chinese tennis player Feng Shunyi (36) revealed his current situation.

On the 18th, Chinese media CGTN reported, “We have received an e-mail sent by Shun Feng during the Women’s Professional Tennis (WTA) tour.”

According to the report, Feng said through an e-mail, “The allegations of sexual assault are not true, and I have not gone missing.”

“I am resting at home without any problems,” he added.

Earlier, on the 2nd, Peng Shunyi claimed to social networking service (SNS) that she was “raped by Zhang Ga-ori, a former deputy prime minister of the Chinese State Council.”

After that, Feng’s SNS became unsearchable.

Also, the related news was not transmitted from within China.

In response, Novak Djokovic (Serbia) and Naomi Osaka (Japan) expressed their position that world-class tennis players were worried about Peng’s health.

On the other hand, after the letter was released, WTA Tour CEO Steve Simon said, “Rather, I am more concerned about Peng’s safety and whereabouts.”

He also pointed out, “It’s hard to believe that Feng Shun actually wrote that email.”

He further explained, “I tried to contact Feng several times, but failed.”

In addition, he added, “Peng should be able to freely express his opinion without any coercion.”

AFP news agency said, “I asked the China Tennis Association about this, but there was no answer.”

On the other hand, Xie Feng was the women’s doubles winner of the 2013 Wimbledon and 2014 French Open tennis tournaments, and climbed to the top of the world doubles ranking in 2014.
