Coupe Davis 2021 - Novak Djokovic : "I support fully WTA's stance because we don't have enough information about Shuai Peng and her well-being, and her health is of the utmost importance"

Novak Djokovic on the big news is that WTA decided not to play anymore in China for the next tournaments unless something will be said about Shuai Peng. I understand we are talking about Davis Cup, but this is a major issue. I would like the PTPA president say something.

"I'm not a PTPA president. I'm one of the co-founders. The PTPA's stance is always to support the players. So it is the players' organization. I support fully WTA's stance because we don't have enough information about Shuai Peng and her well-being, and her health is of the utmost importance for the tennis community regardless of the fact that it's her. It can be anybody, both male and female player that something like this could happen. I don't see anything wrong in WTA and everyone, actually, ATP, as well, asking for clarity on what is going on. We don't have enough information, and I think it's a very bold, very courageous stance from WTA. I haven't seen the news. You just told me now. I have to see a little bit more what are the details, but I support it. I think it's important that we support each other, as I said, ATP, WTA, PTPA, male, female players.

Regardless of which organization you belong to or your personal stance, I think collectively we need to have a little more clarity on what is going on. I don't know if she has stated something or not. I have not seen it officially. Just maybe a week or few weeks ago, some kind of statement went out, she was asking for privacy. You know, it's really sad that we don't have enough clarity on that. I mean, it's life of a tennis player that is in question here, so we, as tennis community, need stand together, and so I support it."
