Begin the write-up match review, adding simple preliminaries like rankings and weather, so that this can be updated throughout the match and save time afterwards, enabling the article to be published and live on the GoHeels website straight after the match.
Match Day, Doubles: Each of the three court's scores are updated manually by the line referee, and then updated on the scoreboard before being input into the stats program--published after each update. The results of the doubles point will be Tweeted out, updated on the statistics software, and added to the continually developing post-match column.
Match Day, Singles: Three courts in front of the stats table, three courts directly behind. Six large keypads that serve to update each of the six court's scores on the scoreboard. The computer stats program. Taking care of Tweeting updates from the match. The consistent back and forth of the ball in a tennis match mirrors the consistent back and forth of the information director at these events.
Making sure the stats on the scoreboard and on the website are up-to-the-moment, and update those following along on Twitter while also trying to keep track of writing the wrap-up column. There are minutes where nothing is necessary to be updated, and minutes where it seems every court has action going on that needs to be followed closely. This push and pull of action is part of keeping your wits about you on the job.
Match Day, Post-Match: Tweeting the final results of the match is the first thing to be done after the match ends. Input the final information into a graphic design software and share the results through an image. Then finish up with the statistics program, making sure to update and publish the information before saving the file as a PDF to be sent to the visiting team's athletic department so that they may have the information for their records. After this, either finish the post-match column now or after interviews depending on how much is left to be written.
Dealing with press is the biggest post-match duty besides finishing the column write-up. The post-match interviews are quite a responsibility to make sure that the interviews don't run off topic, become offensive, or any other result besides the desired information. First, consult with the media about who they would like to talk to, and then gather up the players and coaches, and stand close by during interviews to supervise. Tweeting quotes that can be found either interesting or humorous is a spur of the moment decision, and then once interviews are over and players and coaches are thanked.
If the column is not yet finished, finish and publish it to the website as well as upload the statistics. If any of the department's contracted photographers were present, talk with them about having them send in an album of photographs from the match that can be uploaded to the GoHeels website as well.
