Reynolds Named ITA National Player of the Month for Third Time 5/12/03
Commodores Set to Take on Texas A&M in NCAA Sweet 16

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Junior Bobby Reynolds (Acworth, Ga.) was named National Player of the Month for April by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), making him the only collegiate men’s tennis player ever to earn the monthly honor on three occasions.

The nation’s top-ranked player has had an incredible season for the Commodores. Of all the accomplishments he has earned this season, Reynolds greatest achievement possibly came on Sunday when he won the deciding match against Pepperdine in the NCAA Second Round. He came back from a break of serve down in the third set to Calle Hansen to give Vanderbilt its first trip to the NCAA Sweet 16.

A couple of Reynolds’ accomplishments this year include being named Southeastern Conference Player of the Year and the SEC’s Most Outstanding Player. He has also compiled a 2002-03 singles record of 41-6, which included a 22-1 dual-match mark. His 41 wins are a new Vanderbilt single-season record. He also holds the Vanderbilt all-time career mark with 94 singles victories.

Reynolds and the rest of the sixth-ranked Commodores will take on 10th-ranked Texas A&M at 12 p.m. (EST) Saturday at the newly constructed Dan MaGill Tennis Center in Athens, Ga.
