Now that the new generation of American women tennis players has hit its stride at the U.S. Open, what is the state of American men’s tennis? When Sloane Stephens, 24, defeated Madison Keys, 22, in the women’s final at the Open on Saturday, it was the first time that two American women had met for the title since 2002 when Serena Williams beat her sister, Venus. Serena was on maternity leave at this Open, and Venus, at 37, made the semifinals, beaten by Stephens.
It was past midnight Friday when Madison Keys, still floating after her steamrolling semifinal win over CoCo Vandeweghe, mused on her U.S. Open title matchup with Sloane Stephens. “I was actually just laughing and thinking who would have thought in Australia that Sloane and I would be the finalists at the U.S. Open?” Keys said.
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have never met at the U.S. Open. They won’t this year, either. The most highly anticipated match of this Open, Federer and Nadal in the semifinals, was rendered mute when Juan Martin del Potro took Federer’s place, beating him in the quarterfinals on Wednesday night.
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".
