Djoko bundles out Federer

MELBOURNE, Australia – 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.

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.
