Watch any U.S. Open match and you’ll see players hitting groundstrokes with blistering speed and spin. To handle that power, players move deeper behind the baseline to have more time to defend against these aggressive shots. To counter this, some players will use the drop shot to surprise an opponent expecting a potent groundstroke, rather than a gentle shot played just over the net.
Keys, 22, is reunited with her coach Lindsay Davenport and seems to be fully recovered from wrist surgery late last year. Her rising level of play makes her a serious threat to contend for her first major championship. At the tournament in Stanford, Calif., this summer, she overpowered Garbiñe Muguruza and Coco Vandeweghe to win the title. Keys, seeded 15th, has one of the game’s best serves, which she hits with a beautiful, flowing motion that generates tremendous speed and spin.
Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam tournament of the year, is set to begin on Monday. Serena Williams, the defending women’s champion, is pregnant with her first child and will not play. Andy Murray, the defending men’s champion, is in a midyear slump. New contenders could emerge. Here are a few players who have been in good form ahead of the tournament. When Barty won the Wimbledon junior title in 2011 at 15, she was hailed as the future of Australian tennis.
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".
