Fabio Fognini was booted from the U.S. Open after verbally abusing a female umpire, representing another lowpoint for the hot-tempered Italian. During his opening round defeat Wednesday to Stefano Travaglia, Fognini was heard hurling insults in Italian at ump Louise Engzell. As a result, Fognini was fined for three violations totaling $24,000 and was “provisionallysuspended” from the Open on Saturday.
The American women are rolling with Serena Williams on maternity leave. The U.S. will have at least four representatives in the Round of 16 of the women's bracket, including two underdog winners from Saturday in CoCo Vandeweghe and Jennifer Brady. Vandeweghe, seeded 20th, pulled off an emotional upset over No. 10 Aga Radwanska, 7-5, 4-6, 6-4, during a nearly three-hour marathon on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
With the roof open, Rafael Nadal didn't have to deal with too much noise this time at Arthur Ashe Stadium. But the world's No. 1 did have to contend with a surprising early deficit Thursday against Taro Daniel, before easing to victory in the final three sets, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. "It's true I didn't play well tonight, but it's true that I'm through," said a relieved Nadal.
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".
