Reynolds Named ITA National Player of the Month 2/10/03

SKILLMAN, N.J. - The Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced that Vanderbilt junior Bobby Reynolds (Acworth, Ga./Harrison) was named the National Collegiate Player of the Month for January. He becomes the first player in Vanderbilt men’s tennis history to earn this honor.

Reynolds is coming of an incredible month of January, which was highlighted by winning the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championship at the Racquet Club of the South in Norcross, Ga. Over the four-day event, which showcased the conference’s best talent, Reynolds won six singles matches en route to his biggest collegiate achievement.

Over the four days, the eighth-ranked Reynolds defeated four nationally-played players, including No. 29-ranked Janne Holmia of Florida in the championship, 7-6, 6-1. He has defeated 10 nationally-ranked players this season, while posting a solid 22-5 singles mark. He will also carry a 12-match winning streak into this weekend of action.

Reynolds, along with the rest of his teammates, will look to rebound after a difficult, 4-3, loss to Southeastern Conference rival Arkansas on Sunday, when they take on No. 75-ranked Furman on Saturday, February 15, at the Brownlee O. Currey Tennis Center. Check back to VUCommodores.com for an exact time on the start of the match.
