PARIS, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- British rider Adam Yates took the lead of the Tour de France after home title favorite Julian Alaphilippe was given a 20-second penalty in Wednesday's stage five, which was won by Belgian Wout van Aert.
"It was anybody's game really for a set and a half. I made some breaks and then obviously after winning the second set I felt more comfortable. I was returning better, I started to read his serve better, and I was pleased with my serve. Overall, it was a very good test, and I am happy to get through," said Djokovic, who is bidding to capture his fourth US Open trophy and 18th Grand Slam title.
THE HAGUE, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Manchester United have signed midfielder Donny van der Beek from Ajax, both clubs announced on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old is now 16th in the overall rankings, 16 seconds behind new leader Yates.
"It's top players, so if you wait for the mistake it's never going to happen," Garcia said. "If you let Pliskova breeze and take your serve, you're never going to make a return, and then it's 6-4, 6-4 and you're done in one hour."
Speaking to Sky Sports while on international duty with Wales, Bale was asked about his future at the La Liga champions.
"I was looking to take the jersey on stage six anyway so I'll go in with the same tactic - try to win the stage and see what happens."
Alaphilippe had led Yates by four seconds when the race was finished and looked to have retained the yellow jersey, but television footage showed him taking a bottle from a Deceuninck-Quick Step team support member with 17.8km to go - under the rules of cycling's world governing body UCI, riders are not allowed to take on food or drink in the final 20km of a race.
A source told Xinhua, they have paid 50 percents of the negotiated fees at the initial stage of the three-year circle.
Asked whether he would be willing to return to England in the future, Bale replied, "If those options arise, it is something I'd look at for sure."
During his career as a shuttler, he became a gold medalist in men's singles at the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games. He also won two All-England Open Badminton Championships in 1995 and 1996, and the European Badminton Championships in 1992, 1994 and 1996.
