James McGee fights and falls in Penza, Russia
James McGee competed in an ATP Challenger tournament this week in Penza, Russia, where life is lived at a very different pace than here in Ireland. With a hotel in the forest and minimal internet, McGee went to Penza in the hopes of returning home a champion. McGee easily defeated his first opponent, Ilya Chkoniya of Russia, 6-3 6-1. Advancing to the second round, McGee was matched against Yuki Bhambri of India. Regrettably, McGee lost to Bhambri 6-2 6-1.
