Dan Evans, who is due to return to tennis from a drugs ban next month, will not get the same welcoming embrace the game extended to Maria Sharapova last summer when her 15-month suspension ended. The Lawn Tennis Association controversially gifted a wild card to Sharapova in the pre-Wimbledon Birmingham event although the Russian, who tested positive for meldonium in 2016, ultimately made her slam comeback at the US Open.
Eight days after celebrating the arrival of twins and 10 days before the French Open, Roger Federer had to cope with an unlikely – though not altogether catastrophic – setback in Rome on Wednesday and left for Switzerland, "angry, disappointed and frustrated". Yet the shock of the world No4 losing to Jérémy Chardy in the second round of the Rome Open on Campo Centrale – where Andy Murray had just beaten Marcel Granollers in straight sets – was that it was not that much of a shock.
Scott Quigg might one day be a world featherweight champion although, whatever he weighs, he would struggle to beat Óscar Valdez, who got the better of him in Los Angeles on Saturday night. The Mexican proved he was a cut above the challenger in class, and on the mark on the scales, when he outboxed Quigg over 12 bloody rounds to keep his WBO title for the fourth time, although the man from Bury gave his best. He broke his own nose and his opponent’s jaw. That’s a proper tear-up.
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".
