Imagine Serena Williams handing out free tickets to one of her tennis matches in a grocery store parking lot or Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys going on local radio shows to ask fans to tune into their championship match at the U.S. Open. The thought might seem far-fetched, but 47 years ago, that was a reality for the "Original 9," the women who created what would become the Women's Tennis Association.
In A'ja Wilson vs. the treadmill, the treadmill wonBy Katie Barnes | Sep 21, 2017espnW.comA'ja Wilson is a two-time SEC player of the year, a two-time All-American and a national champion with South Carolina women's basketball. But that doesn't mean she knows how to run on a treadmill. The basketball star had a bit of a misstep during a workout. I'm just going to be honest here: She face-planted. Go on, try to stop laughing. I dare you.
Kaitlyn Christian didn't expect to be in a movie, but there she was gripping a wooden tennis racket attempting to mimic Emma Stone, who was morphing into former women's No. 1 Billie Jean King for the "Battle of the Sexes" biopic film. The movie recalls the 1973 tennis match between King and former men's No.1 Bobby Riggs and releases on Sept. 22. Christian, Stone's stunt double, was tasked with helping the Academy Award-winning actress play King's game.
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".
