COACH GRAHAM on CRUMMEY: "Cat is one of the toughest competitors I have seen. She will fight tooth and nail for a match. She is a good athlete who is a much better tennis player than her ranking and record. She can get a lot better in college with regular training, coaching and competition. Cat has a big forehand and the foot speed to get around a lot of balls to use that weapon.
