No one can match Serena right now. She can only beat herself.

Raonic and Pospisil are not participating in Davis Cup. Does that mean it's up to Frank Dancevic now?!?

Looks like it's going to be a replay of last years finals, fed is a beast... I'd like to see him win another grandslam

Incredible game by Murray and Federer. Very surprised it was over in straight sets but Federer got breaks at the most opportune times (excluding the 5 set points he wasted in one game).

If Federer brings that level against Djokovic he could win on Sunday.

Yea, he was serving well, didn't give Murray many opportunities to break. He plays those key points so well.

Any recommendation for stringers DT Toronto? Surprised to see the rise in price for stringing labour on Kijiji (Uses to pay $10 and now it is like $15-$20 BYOS)

Anyone used this service before?:

Pretty decent prices. Most people don't break their strings often enough for a few dollars to matter in the long run. Better to pay a bit more for better quality. Yes, there are several ways to do a crappy job!

In Montreal, I pay roughly $17 ($15 + tax) at the Uniprix Stadium shop. Independent stringers charge $15 so I don't see the point in using them to save $2. The biggest cost is the strings so I just buy mine in rolls on eBay.

As a stringer, I enjoy that one on one interaction with my clients. I give them exactly what they want and I think that's where independent stringers have an edge. You build good relationships with repeat clients so that the savings (or lack thereof) don't matter anymore.
