Serena Williams is the greatest women’s tennis player ever. But she would rank between Brazil’s Wilson Leite and Egypt’s Issam Haitham Taweel if she played the men’s circuit. That’s basically what men’s tennis legend John McEnroe said during an interview Sunday. Never heard of Leite and Haitham Taweel? McEnroe may not have either. Leite, 25, has played in 26 professional tournaments and No. 699 in the world. Haitham Taweel, 27, has played in 31 professional tournaments and is No. 700.
Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said the team would’ve picked Duke forward Jayson Tatum even before they traded down in the NBA draft from No. 1 to No. 3. That said, Kansas forward Josh Jackson probably didn’t do himself any favors with his last-minute cancellation of a scheduled workout with Ainge and others from the Celtics organization in Sacramento. Jackson ended up getting drafted right behind Tatum, at No. 4 overall by the Phoenix Suns. “Never talked with Josh.
Rumors were swirling around the New York Knicks in the days leading up to the NBA draft, with folks wondering if team President Phil Jackson was really going to trade rising star Kristaps Porzingis. But Knicks owner James Dolan was staying out of it. So much so that he was playing a gig with his blues-rock band, JD and the Straight Shot, at the same time as and a mere 3 1/2 miles away from the draft, which took place Thursday evening at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
