Georgian Bobby Reynolds Takes Doubles Title at Harrah's Entertainment Men's Pro Challenger

May 17, 2006 05:33 PM

Former Vanderbilt standout and Georgia native Bobby Reynolds excelled last week at Harrah's Entertainment $50,000 Men's Pro Challenger in Tunica, MS. He and partner Jeff Morrison took home the doubles championship after defeating Lesley Joseph and Frank Moser (7-5, 6-3). As the tournament’s no.2 seed, Reynolds and Morrison advanced through the Challenger without losing a set to any of their opponents.

Reynolds, who turned pro in 2003 after his junior year at Vanderbilt, has a lengthy schedule this season. Only five months into the season, the Harrah’s Challenger was the 17th event he has competed in thus far in 2006. He maintains that he is keeping a full schedule in an effort to try to keep his ranking up. The 23-year old is currently ranked no. in the INDESIT ATP rankings.

His first Challenger singles win came to him last year in Nashville and he has been a semifinalist in three Challengers this year. The win in Tunica was his first in doubles.
