  • The Women's Tennis Association has suspended tournaments in China and Hong Kong. 
  • The organization's CEO said the suspensions were due to concerns of the safety of player Peng Shuai.

The Women's Tennis Association has suspended all tournaments in China and Hong Kong amid concerns for the safety of athlete Peng Shuai, the organization's CEO said in a statement on Wednesday.

"I don't see how I can ask our athletes to compete there when Peng Shuai is not allowed to communicate freely and has seemingly been pressured to contradict her allegation of sexual assault," CEO Steve Simon said.
