Federer, Nadal now gone at Australian Open

Roger Federer of Switzerland reacts during his men's singles semi-final match against Novak Djokovic of Serbia on the eleventh day of the Australian Open. -- PHOTO: AFP MELBOURNE - ROGER Federer was knocked out of the Australian Open 7-6 (3), 7-5, 6-4 by 2008 champion Novak Djokovic on Thursday, joining Rafael Nadal on the sidelines of the first Grand Slam tournament of the year. The talk before the event was a blockbuster final between Nadal, going for his fourth straight Grand Slam win, and Federer, who was aiming for his fifth Australian title and perhaps the only player who could stop him. Instead, after Nadal was eliminated by fellow Spaniard David Ferrer, and now Federer heading home, it will be a Djokovic final against either Andy Murray or Ferrer. It's the first time since 2003 that 16-time Grand Slam winner Federer will not hold any of the four major trophies. -- AP
