Pro tour

Todd began playing future tournaments in 2001 and won his first future tournament in 2002 in New Zealand. He began playing challenger tournaments after his maiden future victory, with his ranking reaching new heights he made the cut for the qualifying tournament in Nottingham and played his first ATP match against Greg Rusedski after qualifying. Todd Reid's 2004 Australian summer was the biggest highlight of his professional career where he reached the final of a challenger in New Caledonia (losing to Guillermo Cañas in the final), made the quarterfinal in Adelaide and Sydney and made the third round of the Australian Open in which he played Sargis Sargsian in the second round, playing through cramping and vomiting to pull out a five set victory on the Vodafone Arena.

In May 2005 Reid, due to injuries, quit the tennis tour as a full-time participant. He did play two Futures events in Victoria, Australia in early 2006, but did not advance beyond the second round. He played no events in 2007. The following year Reid played one Futures event in April in Spain and reached the final. He then played one event in Australia in September, losing in the first round, and another in December, losing through retirement in the semi-finals. In the (Australian) Spring of 2009, Reid played three events, retiring from matches due to injury in each event.

Reid's career-high doubles ranking was World No. 305, which he achieved in February 2003. He won $301,844 in his career.
