SUZHOU, China, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Hebei China Fortune upset giants Shanghai SIPG with a 2-0 victory in the 9th round of the Chinese Super League (CSL) on Saturday night, while Chen Pu's winning goal helped Shijiazhuang Ever Bright overcome Qingdao Huanghai 1-0.
"The many games are a threat to the players' health. I don't understand why we went back to only three substitutes in the Nations League instead of five," Loew complained about UEFA's bad planning.
In the men's shot put, Ryan Crouser of the U.S. won with a throw of 22.70m, followed by Poland's Michal Haratyk and Leonardo Fabbri from Italy.
"Right now I'm really focused on the US Open, and nothing else I can think about right now," said Williams, who won six of her 23 Grand Slam singles titles at the US Open.
"All the people involved with the Games are working together to prepare, and the athletes are also making considerable efforts toward next year under the circumstances they've been handed," Hashimoto said during a press conference.
"I don't think I have ever gotten defaulted yet in my career or in my life. No, I haven't been in a situation like that. But as I said, it's very unlucky, very unfortunate," Zverev added.
"I just started playing maybe a little bit more aggressive because if I would have played the way I played, that's not the level for a quarterfinal match of a Grand Slam," Zverev said. "I had to start playing better and I was a little bit more consistent then as well. My serve got better and I said to myself, 'I'm down 6-1, 4-2, I have nothing to lose.'"
"I was playing well today," said Thiem. "I had a good plan for the match. He's very dangerous when he can dictate with his forehand. I was trying to avoid that. He also has very, very fast legs. I was trying to play my fastest tennis to keep him on the backhand, to not let him dictate with the forehand. I did that very well today."
"As for the disqualification, I need to go back within and work on my disappointment and turn this all into a lesson for my growth and evolution as a player and human being."
RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- English Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers have made a bid to sign Gremio and Brazil U-23 forward Pepe, according to Brazilian press reports on Friday.
"Since 2010, I have never gone without competing for such a long time, so this represents a precious chance," said the 2016 world champion. "It's important to recover my form step by step."
