Biography

Born in Egypt Xenophon Casdagli moved to England, where his father set up trade as a cotton merchant, at an early age. He and another brother, Theodore, continued their father's business as Emmanuel Casdagli & Sons. Educated in England and France it was whilst studying in Paris that he partnered Vacherot to a French national doubles title in 1898.

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 1908, before the event became part of the official Wimbledon program, and repeated as mixed doubles champion in 1909 alongside Maude Garfit. Casdagli became a British citizen before 1901 although it is possible that he also held Greek citizenship.
