Roger Federer is Indeed out of the AO.

Roger, out since February with a knee injury and subsequent surgery to correct the issue, may not be ready for Melbourne with a possibility that he may retire due to his knee complication. At the moment his knee is not 100% and is slow to come around. The possibility of retirement looms in response to a question from a reporter, not denying such. He'll be 40 in August and it'll be a sad day indeed if he has to call it a day, when he still wants to play while remaining competitive even at this late date in his career.

Well......it is confirmed Roger will not play the AO. Knee hasn't responded well to 2 surgical procedures. Hopes to be ready after February.
