Reginald "Reggie" or "R.F." Frank Doherty (14 October 1872 in Wimbledon, Surrey – 29 December 1910 in Kensington, London) was a British male tennis player, and the older brother of Laurie Doherty. He was known in the tennis world as "R.F." rather than "Reggie".

Doherty was educated at the University of Cambridge (Trinity Hall), where he played for the Cambridge University Lawn Tennis Club.

According to his obituary in The New York Times, Doherty, only 38, had "been ill health for some time". The article further stated, he "held at various times every important championship the world of tennis has for a man to win. He was not beaten until he began to fail in health".

R.F. and his brother had been urged to take up lawn tennis by their father, reportedly for health reasons.
