Rare Peak Federer scenes Down Under
Fedzy kicked off his Prime years by setting the benchmark of excellence in the first week of the maiden slam of 2004.
19 year old Reid had just broken the Prince of Tennis to love to lead 3-2 in the first set of the third round. Federer, seemingly undeterred, would suddenly go through the gears like only he could back in the day. An ominous sign of things to come for his opponents in the next 4 years.
Federer, as it turned out, had entered his prime. And little unknown Reid was one of his first victims.
