DIXON ON CRAMER: "Mellana has the ability to create winners quickly. She can open up the court with one strike of the ball. She's got excellent feel and quick racket head speed. She hits the ball very flat. I expect that she'll see some action as a freshman in both singles and doubles. Mellana Cramer has the potential to be an important player in this program in years to come. What she's lacking is match play and experience."
