    Hey community. I recently met a player by the name of Dash Kramer (no relation to Jack), he claims to be training to start playing challengers in a couple of months, being backed by IMG.
    I have a feeling that this guy is just a con hack, he's 23 and just now "starting" to train for competition.

    There's a dash Kramer that played for California Lutheran university on college tennis online, that's all I could find. It only has a few results posted, so no telling.

    He doesn't have an ATP ranking, so he won't be starting in the Challengers, he'll be playing Opens and trying to get into some qualies for Futures, but you don't decide to train for the Challengers, it doesn't work like that, even if he knows someone, he might get that one WC, but that's it, unless he somehow were to win that Challenger.

    There's a Dashiell Kramer (age 23) on the ITF website. He played in a Futures a couple years ago. Might not be as bogus as you think.

    He lost in the first round of qualies....
    No worries, I contacted IMG and they have never heard of him. Answered my question.

    IMG should not really be answering such queries

    Well if a player is going around promoting that they are; don you think it would be in the best interest of a person who may or may not be doing some business with them to find out?

    He' full of BS!

    This Dash Kramer character lists himself as a 7.0 on the tennisround.com site. Check his youtube vids and you can see he's about a 4.5 at best LOL. Delusional jackass!

    Great first name for tennis. On that alone he could contact B&G Foods, Inc. for sponsorship.
