Though affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the past CBA season was regarded as a remarkable one in the league's 25-year history.
18-year-old Lorenzo Musetti of Italy, who had upset three-time Grand Slam winner Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland and Japan's top player Kei Nishikori in the tournament's opening two rounds, lost to Dominik Koepfer of Germany 6-4, 6-0.
"The result didn't meet my expectations, I was thinking about 20.50s or so," said Xie.
TEHRAN, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- Saket Elhami, the head coach of Iran's Tractor soccer team, has been banned from all related activities for three months, the Tehran Times daily reported on Tuesday.
The former assistant to Pep Guardiola has overseen five wins, two draws and four losses, the same number of defeats suffered by the team in the entire 2019 Brazilian Serie A season.
"We are working hard for the new season and I think we will have the same group of players that we have now in pre-season," he commented.
In stoppage time, Zhang Chengdong's right-footed volley enabled Hebei to cut the deficit to 3-2.
Julian Nagelsmann's men gained momentum and doubled their advantage only four minutes later when Dani Olmo had sufficient space at the edge of the box and chipped the ball into the path of Poulsen, who headed the ball over Zentner.
"While we were training with the national team in the last few months, our teammates were also working hard with our coach in Tianjin, so I am very confident in our team," said Wang in a recent interview with local media.
"The result didn't meet my expectation. I was just not in right tempo," Xie commented.
Last season's top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed the scoring ten minutes later, finishing off a fine team goal by curling home from Willian's assist.
