Hi, Karoly,

The Ceylon Championships began in 1884, when the main event was a men's singles. The name of Frank Hadow isn't on the list of winners, which I saw in "Ayres' Lawn Tennis Almanack" for 1912. I've never seen Frank Hadow's name in the draw of any event at any tournament, except for Wimbledon in 1878.
