Data come from a sports website, Olympics at Sports-Reference.com which gives his name as Xenofon Kasdaglis/Casdagli, originally Ξενοφών Κάσδαγλης. It notes: "Educated in England and France it was whilst studying in Paris that he partnered Vacherot to a French national doubles title in 1898. Kasdaglis, whose name was anglicized as Casdagli, won three North of England doubles titles and was twice a singles finalist at the same event. He also partnered Charlotte Cooper to victory in the All-England mixed doubles championships in 1907, before the event became part of the official Wimbledon program. Kasdaglis became a British citizen before 1901 although it is possible that he also held Greek citizenship." "The Manchester and Lancashire players, X.E. and E.T. Casdagli, uncle and nephew, were not entered [in Cairo tournament], the one having only recently recovered from a serious operation, while the other was also indisposed. This is unfortunate, since 'X.E.' is still able to hold his own in doubles with the best of Egyptian players." (Manchester Guardian, 15 Mar 1932, p 4).
    • Casdagli vs. Mavrogordato. In June 1909, his singles career in decline, Xenophon Casdagli defended the All-England Mixed Doubles title at Old Trafford, Manchester, with Miss Maude Garfit.
