Nadal vs Shapovalov, Novak Djokovic sets up French Open, explodes Peng Shuai shirt ban

Australian Open jailed for shirt ban

Martina Navratilova has criticized the Australian Open chiefs for the ‘pathetic’ ban on t-shirts that read, ‘Where is Peng Shaui?’.

The tennis legend, 65, is the latest star to make waves over the mysterious disappearance of 36-year-old Chinese tennis player Peng.

It comes after spectators at Melbourne Park were asked to remove their jerseys in support of the former world No 14 before entering the field on Friday.

Navratilova, who has won 18 singles titles, tweeted: “That’s pathetic. WTA stands pretty alone on this!!!”

Tennis Australia has defended its stance saying that the tournament does not allow political statements.

It said in a statement: “As a condition of our admission, we do not allow clothing, banners or signs of a commercial or political nature.”
