Australian Open slammed for jersey ban

Martina Navratilova has slammed Australian Open chiefs for their “pathetic” ban on T-shirts that read “Where’s Peng Shaui?”.

The tennis legend, 65, is the latest star to make waves following the mysterious disappearance of Chinese tennis ace Peng, 36.

It comes after spectators at Melbourne Park were asked to remove tops supporting the former world number 14 before entering the pitch on Friday.

Navratilova, who has won 18 singles titles, tweeted: “This is just pathetic. The WTA is pretty much alone in this!!! »

Tennis Australia has defended its position by saying the tournament does not allow political statements.

It said in a statement: ‘Under our entry requirements, we do not allow clothing, banners or signs of a commercial or political nature.
