TORONTO — Eugenie Bouchard has never advanced past the Round of 16 at the Rogers Cup. She’s in Toronto, in somewhat familiar ground, hoping that 2017 is the year that changes. “I love coming to The Six, it’s so cool,” she told reporters on Monday at Aviva Centre. “I don’t spend much time here, but I do have some family and some friends that are here.”Bouchard will face Donna Vekic on Tuesday in a first-round matchup that is anything but a gimme.
The 2017 Rogers Cup gets underway on Monday, with a slate of matches scheduled on both the men’s and women’s sides in Montreal and Toronto respectively. Here are some of of the most intriguing storylines to follow:Nick Kyrgios will face Viktor Troicki at Court Central in Montreal, looking to improve on last year’s first-round defeat at the hands of Canadian Denis Shapovalov. Kyrgios looked disinterested at times during his loss to Shapovalov, double-faulting 18 times.
Former Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jesse Barfield took to Twitter to stick up for Marcus Stroman on Friday. Stroman’s charged personality has led the starting pitcher into a couple of… “incidents” in his two most recent starts. He was ejected in the fifth inning of a game against the Oakland Athletics on July 27 for arguing with umpire Will Little, and got into a shouting match with Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson on Tuesday.
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".
