VIDEO: Australian Open Flashback – Federer vs. Safin, 2005 Mens Semi

2005: Safin beats Federer in a thrilling 5-setter and goes on to beat hometown hero Lleyton Hewitt

A thrilling match that ended with Safin beating Federer in the Semis and hometown here, Hewitt in the final. Safin really kept it together throughout the tournament and passed the FedTest with flying colours. This was a slugfest with accuracy, shot making and intensity. Love the embrace at the end – Federer’s hand kills it for me. Enjoy!
