Maria Sharapova has climbed the rankings and won a WTA title since returning from a doping ban last April – but has her comeback lived up to expectations? When quizzed about the negative comments of others, Maria Sharapova likes to say that her tennis speaks for itself. But now that the chorus of disapproval has subsided, 10 months after she returned from her doping ban with that headline-grabbing semi-final run in Stuttgart, Sharapova’s results are not shouting as loudly as planned.
Rafael Nadal is ready to return from injury in Acapulco but the 10-time French Open champion already has his sights set on more clay-court domination. Since Rafael Nadal last played a tournament match – a crushing fifth set injury retirement against Marin Cilic in their Australian Open quarter-final – sponsorship duties have taken the 31-year-old from a bank in Alicante to a sports medicine clinic in Madrid, and beyond.
Where there’s a record, Roger Federer is out to break it. And he’ll attempt to make more history next week in Rotterdam when he attempts to become the oldest ever ATP world No.1. What do you give the man who has everything? Or, more to the point, what does the man who has almost everything still want? In Roger Federer’s case the decision to request a wildcard for this week’s ATP 500 tournament in Rotterdam suggests that his career wishlist includes a return to No.1. Now.
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".
