Fourth-seeded Marat Safin defeated Lleyton Hewitt in the final, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2005 Australian Open. It was Safin's second and last Grand Slam title, having also won the 2000 U.S. Open. Hewitt became the first Australian player to reach the final since Pat Cash in the 1988.[1][2]

Roger Federer was the defending champion, but was defeated in the semifinals by Marat Safin despite holding a match point in the 4th set. This ended Federer's 26-match winning streak in ATP tournaments starting from 2004 US Open.[3]

The final attracted many viewers in Australia, averaging 4.05 million viewers.[4] The viewing audience remains one of the highest in Australian viewing history. The match was broadcast in the host nation by host broadcaster the Seven Network with commentators Bruce McAvaney and two-time champion Jim Courier (in his first time).

This tournament was the first major in which future world No. 1 and Australian Open record champion Novak Djokovic competed in the main draw (lost to Safin in the first round), and the last Australian Open where Andre Agassi competed in the main draw. It was also the last major in which neither Federer, Djokovic nor Rafael Nadal made the final until the 2014 US Open, a span of 38 events.
