There are a lot of reasons to feel like 2017 could be mistaken for 2007. Roger Federer heading to the US Open later this month targeting a third grand slam title of the year. The Swiss player likely to spend the remaining period of the year duelling for top spot in the rankings with arch-rival Rafael Nadal.
Ahead of qualifying for the British Grand Prix at 4pm UAE time on Saturday, here are some talking points and things to watch for at Silverstone. In Austria last weekend it was Lewis Hamilton who took the pain of a gearbox change, resulting in a five-place grid penalty. Now the boot is on the foot of his Mercedes-GP teammate Valtteri Bottas. The Finn, despite topping the times in both Friday sessions will be able to start no better than sixth for Sunday's race.
If there is one lesson that 2017 has taught us in the world of men’s tennis, it is that a rest can be good. Roger Federer did not play tennis for the second half of 2016 after losing in the semi-finals of Wimbledon last July to Canadian Milos Raonic as he recovered from knee surgery. The time away from the court did the 35-year-old Swiss no harm, winning the 18th grand slam of his career at the Australian Open.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
