Reynolds led the Vanderbilt Commodores to the NCAA Men's Tennis Championship final in 2003, and was named the tournament's MVP (he defeated fellow future pro Amer Delic of Illinois in the team final, but the Commodores fell 4–3 to the Illini in the championship). That same year, he finished the season number one in the nation in singles. He was also named ITA National Player of Month a record three times in '03, and named Southeastern Conference Player of Year in '03, finishing his final season with a 46–7 singles record. He owned the school record for career wins in singles (99) until 2015. He holds the record for single-season wins (46 in '03). Reynolds attended Vanderbilt for three years and majored in business, but left in 2003 to pursue his professional tennis aspirations.
He reached the third round of the Australian Open in 2005, defeating Nicolás Almagro and Andrei Pavel before falling to Spaniard Rafael Nadal. In August 2008 he beat world no. 42 Marc Gicquel of France 7–6, 3–6, 6–4. On February 2, 2009, he reached his career high singles ranking when he reached 63rd in the world. In 2006, he teamed with Andy Roddick to capture his first ATP doubles title at the RCA Championships in Indianapolis.
In the second round of 2012 Sydney Apia International, Reynolds won against fellow American John Isner 3–6, 6–4, 6–3, allowing him to progress to the quarterfinals, before he ultimately lost to Jarkko Nieminen from Finland.
