The Australian Open is the first major of the tennis season and could bring a first-time winner in 2012 since the likes of Roger Federer and the following players will fail to take home the title.
Federer is starting to enter the twilight of his career and hasn't won a major since the Australian Open of 2010. That victory was only one of four titles at the open, and the major ranks as his third best.
However, Federer isn't the only big name that will fail in the first major of the season. These other players will not have any luck in the Grand Slam tournament down under.
