Vacation, for me and for the Williams sisters, who will be playing in Toronto next month.

THE STAT

Federer hit 23 winners from the baseline. Roddick managed four.

ATTENDANCE

Total attendance for the tournament was 467,188, which is about what the Montreal Expos drew last season.

DOUBLE TROUBLE

The team of Cara Black and Liezel Huber beat the better known duo of Amelie Mauresmo and Svetlana Kuznetsova in the final.

QUOTE

"People think I'm kidding or that I'm just talking (Federer) up when I say he is the greatest talent of all-time. But I believe that. That's why I compare him already to the Samprases and the Lavers." -- John McEnroe
