2017 Australian Open – Men's Singles

Roger Federer defeated Rafael Nadal in the final 6–4, 3–6, 6–1, 3–6, 6–3 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2017 Australian Open. It was his fifth Australian Open title, and then-record-extending 18th major title overall. The win was Federer's first title in over 12 months; his last title was at Basel on 1 November 2015. This was also the first major tournament since the 2002 US Open in which Federer was ranked outside the top-10. He became the oldest man to reach a major final since Ken Rosewall at the 1974 US Open, and the oldest major champion since Rosewall at the 1972 Australian Open. Nadal was attempting to become the first man in the Open Era to achieve a double career Grand Slam.[1]

Novak Djokovic was the two-time defending champion, but he lost in the second round to 117th-ranked Denis Istomin.[2] It was the first time since the 2008 Wimbledon Championships that Djokovic failed to reach the third round of a major and the first time since the 2006 Australian Open that he did so in Melbourne.

This was the first major tournament in which Andy Murray played as the world No. 1. Murray retained the top ranking despite losing to Mischa Zverev in the fourth round, as Djokovic did not win the tournament. This was the first time since the 2004 French Open that the top two seeds both failed to reach the quarterfinals of a men's singles major.[3]

It was the last major singles appearance for 2010 French Open semifinalist and former world No. 8 Jürgen Melzer, who lost in the first round to Federer, and former world No. 8 Radek Štěpánek, who lost to David Goffin in the second round. It was also the first major tournament for future ATP Finals champion and US Open champion Daniil Medvedev, who lost in the first round.
