2005 Australian Open – Men's Singles

Men's Singles
2005 Australian Open
Champion Marat Safin
Runner-up Lleyton Hewitt
Final score 1–6, 6–3, 6–4, 6–4

Roger Federer was the defending champion but lost in the semifinals to Marat Safin despite holding a match point in the fourth set.

Safin won the title, defeating home player Lleyton Hewitt in the final, 1–6, 6–3, 6–4, 6–4. It was Safin's second and last Grand Slam title, having also won the 2000 U.S. Open.[1][2]

The final attracted a large number of viewers in Australia, averaging 4.05 million viewers.[3] The viewing audience remains one of the highest in Australian viewing history.

This tournament was the first Grand Slam in which future world No. 1 Novak Djokovic competed in the main draw, and the last Australian Open where Andre Agassi competed in the main draw. It was also the last Grand Slam where either Federer, Djokovic, or Rafael Nadal failed to make the finals until the 2014 US Open, a span of 38 events.
