Marat is such a top-notch contender. The level of excitement he brings into this sport is something else. One of his many classics! Too bad his career was shorter than it should’ve been.

Best celebration to a Grand Slam Championship ever.

So many keyboard warriors in the comments LOL pathetic. Hewitt is a warrior, his never say die attitude got him to the final even though he had issues with his hip. The casuals only care about how many slams ppl have won rather than what a player brings to the court, what they had to go through to reach that point. Hewitt for example had to learn how to walk again after all those surgeries but he still managed to win a few titiles after. A modern day gladiator, a warrior, legend of the game and legends never die!

Carlos Ramos officiating in an all-male grand slam final and enforcing rules. But sexism. Right.

Safin beating Maestro and Maestro's punching bag with great style 👍

Safin had easy talent. Injuries and his attitude at times wasn't always top level. Otherwise he would have added more slams to his tally. Still a Hall of Famer.

His knee was the end of his tennis so sad :( he had so much more tennis in him. Great win tho against Hewitt at home in his own country mental toughness was key in this match

This is ONLY GS tournament where finalist defeat Big 3 in the process.
Safin beat Djokovic in Round 1 and Fed in 1/2 Fin & Hewitt beat Nadal in Round 4. Awesome.

If only Safin not messed up 2002 AO final, then I could have hoped Hewitt win 2005.

Safin was such a character, laid back without being cocky, so charming without being narcissistic.He had talent galore and a very entertaining game style.At the end of the day pro tennis is just a form of entertainment and Safin was a demi-God with a great career.

The crucial game was Safin down 2-4 in the 3rd. I think if he loses that game he loses the match but he just blew Hewitt off the court from that point.

Safin truly deserved this Australian Open 2005. On his way he beat 8 time Australian open champ, RESPECT for him 👍

Too bad Hewitt had the hip flexor injury. Would've been able to play a bit better and who knows what may of happened. Ah well. Safin was awesome.
