BEIJING, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly took an improbable first Formula 1 win at Sunday's Italian Grand Prix, in a remarkable race that was turned upside down by a mid-race safety car period and a crash that required the Grand Prix to be halted.
Peters, 26, who is riding in his maiden Tour de France, produced a brilliant long-range solo breakaway to record his first stage win, leading Toms Skujins and Carlos Verona, who arrived at the same time, by 47 seconds.
"I hope we can be among the top four teams in Asia. As a player I would like to go to the World Championships or the Olympic Games and get a medal at the Asian Championships," said Borhani.
However, just 51 league goals and 16 draws show where Atletico's chances all too often disappear. They are hard to break down and they are hard to beat, but all too often they are unable or unwilling to take the initiative and ultimately that costs them points.
"It has been a difficult decision to make but unfortunately I will not be competing in Europe this year," Barty said on social media on Tuesday.
Strikers Mehdi Ghaedi and Arsalan Motahari pulled two back for Esteghlal FC in the second half.
Reigning champion Barty said there were two reasons for her decision to skip the clay-court tournament, which is scheduled to take place in Paris from September 27 to October 11.
Barcelona, who have been supported by the Spanish football league (La Liga), took a different viewpoint, insisting that if he wanted to join a different club he would have to pay the 700 million euro release clause in his contract.
"It was a good day for the team as some favourites from the GC lost time too," said Van Aert.
Both sides have won their past two matches, and were eager to continue the run of good form. Venezuelan striker Salomon Rondon caught a long pass from Zhang Chong and made a quick shot in the 23rd minute, helping Dalian take the lead for the first half.
With reigning US Open champion Nadal, who cited concerns about traveling amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and an injury-hit Federer opting out of the event, Djokovic had been favorite to win another title in New York. Enditem
