A must for canadian tennis fans

There’s so much going on in Canadian tennis right now you really need to stay On top of it. For me the best way to do that is listening to southpaw slice— these guys are dedicated and passionate and keep it going with the regular visits from players and pundits. Give A listen and you will see what I mean.
