Controversial Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios can't help but find himself judged by the expectations of those that pay for tickets, or turn on the television, or have a social media account. As such, the criteria for a modern male Australian player tends to revolve around how hard how they try, or how much soul gets poured into every point. John Millman has become a fan favourite for his near-things against top-ranked players, although he's yet to defeat one.
In the end, it was clinical, composed and calculated. Nick Kyrgios has won the Brisbane International title with a straight sets victory over American Ryan Harrison, putting the finishing touches on a tournament that has set him up perfectly for the Australian Open. After earning his crust in the first set, Kyrgios would take command in the second to win 6-4, 6-2 with a minimum of fuss.
Yet if it's fight on the court his critics wanted to see, they must surely have little to complain about as Kyrgios, now the world number 20, heads into the Australian Open. In winning the Brisbane International with a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Ryan Harrison, the 22-year-old completed a tournament that included three comebacks from a set down. Australians love an old-fashioned fighter on the tennis court. They love a winner even more.
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".
