PARIS, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Astana's Alexey Lutsenko took one of the biggest victories of his career on Thursday as he took his first stage win at the Tour de France, beating second-placed Jesus Herrada by 55 seconds in the 191km-ride from Le Teil to Mont Aigoual.
Bale added that despite apparently not being in Zidane's plans, Madrid had stopped him moving last season.
"It was a heavy finish. It was maybe the most easy stage I ever did in a cycling race because there was no breakaway, not a high pace at all, but then the last hour was really hectic with the wind," Van Aert said.
"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 match ended in a goalless draw, despite Botafogo's 17 shots on goal to Coritiba's seven.
"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."

The competition in Lausanne's Place de l'Europe played host to a fascinating duel between Duplantis and two-time world champion Sam Kendricks from the United States, whose best jump was 6.02 meters.
"I rode my tempo and gave it all to create a gap big enough to win."
"It was a delight to wear yellow. Hopefully I'll keep for a few more days. Let's first see how it goes tomorrow."
The hosts added their third goal when Daniel Sampaio latched onto Marco Antonio's pass to slot home in stoppage time.
