Barty, who was No.271 at the start of the year, rose six spots on live rankings to No.42 after her first win over a top-10 player and her third over a top-20 opponent in the past two months. Williams, the Wimbledon runner-up last month, has a 19cm height advantage over Barty but the willingness of the Queensland qualifier to play aggressively in rallies secured her 6-3, 2-6, 6-2 win.
Tomic, who has plummeted to No. 146 on live rankings, was reported to have cut his foot early last month after his controversial Wimbledon exit in which he laid bare his lack of motivation for tennis, which he said he hoped would return later this year. The former Australian No. 1 entered the main draw for the US Open, which starts on Monday week, but if he played it would be without a tournament in seven weeks and he is at the crossroads in his tennis career.
Australia’s athletes and team management and major visiting teams will be consulted on which events they most want programmed for the meet at Queensland Sports and Athletics Centre and a second, more low-key meet for open athletes there two nights later. “We’ll have a 100m hurdles for sure and it might suit Sally to have a race at that stage of her preparation for the Commonwealth Games,’’ QA chief executive David Gynther said.
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".
