A Washington Kastle In Sydney

Bobby Reynolds of the Kastles is making quite the splash in Sydney, where he's advanced to his first ATP World Tour quarterfinal since the summer of 2008.

Coming off a successful season on the USTA Pro Circuit, the Kastles' closer gained entry into the Sydney singles main draw by winning three matches in the qualifying event.

Reynolds hasn't stopped there, defeating world No. 61 Sergiy Stakhovsky 7-5, 6-3 in the first round and upsetting No. 2 seed John Isner of the Boston Lobsters 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 to reach the quarterfinals.

After splitting the first two sets with the 6-foot-9 Isner, Reynolds raised his game when it matted most. The Kastle made 81 percent of his first serves and won 69 percent of his second serve return points in the final set, taking it to the much taller Isner. With precise passing shots off both his forehand and backhand, Reynolds broke Isner twice in the third set before serving the match out at love.

In terms of rankings, Reynolds' win over the 17th-ranked Isner is the biggest victory of his career.

"I'm happy to get it done," Reynolds said during a video interview on ATPWorldTour.com (click on the thumbnail below to watch the interview). "It was a tough match for both of us today with the conditions being really windy. But I felt like I served well and I returned well when I needed to, and I took advantage of the break points that I got."

We're not suprised on the success of Reynolds. We witnessed his tennis prowess this summer during a Washington Kastles home game.
