KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Fifth-seeded Dominic Thiem defeated Joao Souza of Brazil 7-6 (4), 3-6, 7-5 in a rain-soaked first-round match at the Bet-at-Home Cup on Monday. The 50th-ranked Austrian converted his fourth match point as he broke Souza for a third time in the final set. After the second set, the match was interrupted for nearly an hour due to heavy rain. In the second game of the match, Souza walked off the court after being warned by the umpire for taking too much time between his serves. The Brazilian, who broke Thiem in the opening game, sat on his chair for several minutes but decided to play on after the umpire refused to call the supervisor during the game. Thiem next plays Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic, who defeated Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 6-4, 6-4. Earlier, Pere Riba of Spain held off four set points in the opener before defeating Dustin Brown of Germany 7-6 (6), 7-5. Riba trailed 6-2 in the tiebreaker before reeling off six straight points. Brown, who hit 14 aces, dropped serve at 5-5 in the second set. Also, Maximo Gonzalez of Argentina beat eighth-seeded Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain 6-3, 4-6, 7-5; Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain rallied to beat Victor Galovic of Croatia 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-2; and Andreas Haider-Maurer defeated Gerald Melzer 6-2, 7-6 (1) in an all-Austrian tie.

The 41-year-old midfielder, a World Cup winner with Brazil in 2002, hadnt been playing at a top level for several years and finally decided to end his career with an announcement on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. FIFAs player of the year in 1999, Rivaldo had been playing sparingly for minnow Brazilian club Mogi Mirim. He is expected to remain as the president of Mogi Mirim, where his 18-year-old son is now playing. "With tears in my eyes today I would like first to thank God, my family and all the support (and) the affection that I received during those 24 years as a player," Rivaldo said in a statement published both in Portuguese and in English. "Today, I communicate to all my fans in the world (that) my history as a player came to the end." The talented playmaker thrived in Brazil and abroad in the 1990s, winning two Spanish league titles with Barcelona and the 2003 Champions League trophy with AC Milan, which was his last top European club, before spending time in Greece and finally returning to Brazilian football four years ago. The last top team he played in Brazil was Sao Paulo in 2011, but he was released after an unsuccessful stint in which he played only a few matches as a starter. Before rejoining Mogi Mirim, the team thatt launched him to the national scene in 1994, Rivaldo played for Kabuscorp in Angola and then for Sao Caetano in Brazil, which he left last year citing knee pain.dddddddddddd In his statement, Rivaldo mentioned the hardships that he had to overcome early in his career. He said there were "many obstacles, challenges, waivers, longings, disappointments," but also "much greater joys, achievements, growth (and) change" that allowed a "distant dream" to come true. "I built my career upon a miracle, (living) in (the small city of) Paulista, no financial resources, no businessman, incentives only of my family, discredited by doctors and trainers," he said. "With persistence, dedication and especially with the hand of God, I came to be recognized as the best player in the world, world champion." Along with his statement, Rivaldo published a photo of him with tears in his eyes and another of him alongside his son, Rivaldo Jr. Last month, they got to play together in a Mogi Mirim match and Rivaldo said he fulfilled a longtime dream. Rivaldo also played in the 1998 World Cup, when Brazil was runner-up to France. With the Selecao, he also won the 1997 Confederations Cup, the 1999 Copa America and a bronze medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Rivaldo also previously played for traditional Brazilian clubs Palmeiras and Corinthians, as well as for Deportivo La Coruna in Spain, Olympiacos and AEK Athens in Greece, and Bunyodkor in Uzbekistan.
