Defending champion Roger Federer successfully defended his title, defeating Marin ?ili? in the final, 6-2, 6-7(5-7), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2018 Australian Open. It was Federer's then-record-equalling sixth Australian Open title (tied with Roy Emerson and Novak Djokovic) and record-extending 20th major singles title.[1]

With the win, Federer became the first man to win at least six titles at two major tournaments (six at the Australian Open and eight at Wimbledon). Federer became the oldest man to win a major singles title in the Open Era since Ken Rosewall in 1972.[2] This was the 10th time that Federer defended a major title, with the previous time being at the 2008 US Open. ?ili? became the first Croatian player to reach an Australian Open singles final.[3]

Federer and Rafael Nadal were in contention for the ATP no. 1 singles ranking. Nadal retained the top ranking by reaching the fourth round. It was the first time since the 2011 Australian Open that Federer and Nadal were the top two seeds at a major. Nadal attempted to become the first man in the Open Era and the third man ever to achieve a double career Grand Slam, but retired in the quarterfinals due to injury.

This was the first time since the 2008 Wimbledon Championships that two unseeded players (Chung Hyeon and Kyle Edmund) reached the semifinals of a major men's singles event, and the first time at the Australian Open since 1999.[4] Chung became the first South Korean player to reach the quarterfinals and semifinals of a major event.[5]

Djokovic's fourth-round loss to Chung was his first straight-sets loss at the Australian Open since 2007.[6]

It was also the last Australian Open appearance for 2006 finalist and former world No. 8 Marcos Baghdatis.
