Does anyone know what may cause the leaves of a strawberry plant to curl?

Looks like a simple case of infrequent watering. The leaves often fold like this to slow the transpiration of precious water from their leaves on a hot day. They would remain flat if they had enough water at the roots. The brown crinkly tips seem to hint at this as well.
What have you them planted up in jd555us, and how is your watering schedule?

could be caused by aphids that have now left or Capsids or could be a virus attack especially if only an isolated plant is attacked, in which case dig it out and remove it to a distant location so as to prevent spread. Browning and withering often follows aphid attack and also virus.
