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 was the first Australian player to reach the final since Pat Cash in 1988.[1][2]

Roger Federer was the defending champion, but was defeated in the semifinals by 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 (primarily due to the presence of countryman Hewitt), averaging 4.05 million viewers.[4] The viewing audience remains one of the highest in Australian 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 commentating appearance).

This tournament was the first major in which future 20-time Grand Slam champion and nine-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic competed in the main draw (lost to Safin in the first round), and the last Australian Open where four-time champion Andre Agassi competed in the main draw. Future 20-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal advanced beyond the third round of the major for the first time, losing to Hewitt in the fourth round. It was also the last major in which neither Djokovic, Federer, nor Nadal made the final until the 2014 US Open, a span of 38 events.
