MELBOURNE, Australia - U.S.-based British 15-year-old Katie Swans first time at Rod Laver Arena came not as a spectator, but as a player on centre court.Swan, who lost the Australian Open junior girls final to Slovakias Tereza Mihalikova on Saturday, was visiting Australia for the first time and didnt have time to watch any main-draw matches on the featured show court at Melbourne Park over the past two weeks.After a tough 2-1/2 hour semifinal on Friday, Swan injured her right thigh early while leading 3-0 in the second set. After the injury, she lost six of the next seven games in a 6-1, 6-4 defeat.She planned to be back at Rod Laver Arena in the evening to watch the womens final between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova.In between, Swan, who lives in Wichita, Kansas due to her fathers work commitments, was receiving messages of support from afar.Its actually been crazy, Swan said. There have been so many people that sent me messages, tweeting, Facebook, Instagram. Everybody has been so supportive from my home in England and Wichita, its been amazing.The experience left her with a few more followers on Twitter, and a tweet from injured British player Laura Robson which made me feel real good, Swan said.By Dennis Passa -- http://twitter.com/DennisPassa___Australian

FIFPro, the international soccer players union, had pressed FIFA to avoid the earliest kickoffs in the hottest and most humid weather. After FIFA declined to change the two-year-old schedule, FIFPro suggested that the governing body "considers the demands of TV companies of greater importance than the health and safety of the players." The U.S.-Portugal game initially was set for 3 p.m. local time. Two other games in Manaus -- England vs. Italy on June 14 and Cameroon vs. Croatia on June 18 -- were moved ahead three hours to 6 p.m. The Englland-Italy switch means Ivory Coast vs.ddddddddddddJapan will now start at 10 p.m. local time in the tropical coastal climate of Recife. On June 18, Cameroon-Croatia flips kickoff slots with Spain vs. Chile, which now starts at 4 p.m. in Rio de Janeiro. That means Spains appearance at the Maracana Stadium will now start in Spanish prime time instead of midnight back home. The U.S.-Portugal move forced two other changes. Belgium vs. Russia will start at 1 p.m. local time in Rio de Janeiro, instead of 7 p.m., which would have required European viewers to stay up well beyond midnight.
