John Whitlinger & David Hodge Say: "James is a winner. His record speaks for itself. He isn't going to overpower too many people, but his quickness and mental game in matches are second to none. He's had a good fall and I see no reason why he won't have the same kind of year he's had for us the past two seasons.."
