In a recent comment, Tian et al. [Phys. Plasmas 17, 064701 (2010)] reported a disagreement between their simulation results for the dynamics of an electron in a circularly polarized relativistically intense laser field and those presented in this paper. We demonstrate that the disagreement stems from certain inaccuracies in the analysis and the numerical simulation of the electron dynamics in the comment.
