LONDON, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Manchester United on Thursday confirmed the signing of Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax in a deal worth 39 million pounds (51 million US dollars).
WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has slammed the U.S. government's handling of systemic racism and the COVID-19 pandemic in the country, calling it a "tragic embarrassment," CNN reported Tuesday.
Members of the US women's team filed a lawsuit against their federation in March because of alleged discrimination over wages. A federal judge ruled against the players, who have since lodged an appeal.
"COVID-19 brought us lot of challenges, which were highlighted in the copyright negotiations. We are regretful to announce the termination with Premier League despite rounds of negotiations," read a statement.
Lurie took charge of the Eagles in 1994, and led the team to its first Super Bowl title in 2017.
The victory sends Garcia into the third round, equaling her best US Open result after finishing at that stage every year from 2016 to 2018.
"I was really focused each game and each point. Especially against top players, one point can make the difference. So I had to stay very calm and keep going," the world number 50 added.
"Our original partnership was mainly focused on the World Cup in China. We are thrilled that this has now expanded to be a more all-encompassing partnership across all FIBA competitions."
Flamengo netted twice in quick succession after the restart: first with a stunning first-time effort from playmaker Everton Ribeiro and then with a cool Arrascaeta finish after a counterattack.
Garcia looked untouchable in the first set and for much of the second, blasting 30 winners and breaking Pliskova's serve three times en route to a 6-1, 7-6 (2) victory.
PP Sports, owned by Chinese retail giant Suning Group, had signed a three-year deal with Premier League in 2016. The broadcaster has reportedly withheld a payment of 160 million pounds rights fees which were due to happen in March.
