Rick Teverbaugh: Tennis Classic scheduling a big job


Granted, I know a lot of the players and can usually find a match that will make a good story or I can come back at a later time to view the match I had originally targeted. The same can’t be said for our photographers, who need to take pictures at the scheduled time or not at all.

If there are ever questions about what matches and players get covered, remember that the original choices might not have been playing at the scheduled time.

I am already looking forward to Saturday, late morning and early afternoon, when many of the ‘A’ titles will be decided. But I am also fearful that many of those matches might get played at other times and we could miss them entirely.

As I stated originally, it is a no-win scenario with no right answer and no easy way to get through the scheduling maze. Wednesday’s rain just made it even more difficult. I don’t envy them their job and wouldn’t want to volunteer to do it.

Should the Pacers match Portland's offer sheet to center Roy Hibbert?

Yes, Hibbert is important to the team and the community
No, four years and $58 million is too much
Not sure, I like Hibbert but think the money could be better spent elsewhere
