2019 Australian Open – Men's Singles

Roger Federer was the two-time defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to Stefanos Tsitsipas. Federer's loss meant that he would drop out of the top 5 in the ATP rankings for the first time since April 2017. Tsitsipas became the first Greek player to reach the semifinals at a Grand Slam singles tournament,[1] after becoming the first male player representing Greece to win a main draw singles match at the Australian Open.[2]

Novak Djokovic won a record seventh Australian Open title, defeating Rafael Nadal in the final, 6–3, 6–2, 6–3 to win the Men's Singles tennis title at the 2019 Australian Open. The match lasted two hours and four minutes. This was Djokovic's 15th Grand Slam title, surpassing Pete Sampras for third place on the all-time list, behind Federer and Nadal. He retained the ATP no. 1 singles ranking by reaching the fourth round. Nadal was also in contention for the top ranking at the start of the tournament.[3]

This was the first Australian Open since 1976 to feature a final set tie-break. Upon reaching 6–6 in the fifth set, a long tie-break is played where the winner is the first to both reach ten points and lead by two points.[4] The first men's singles main draw match to feature the ten-point tiebreak was the first round match between Jérémy Chardy and Ugo Humbert.

This tournament was rumoured to be the last Australian Open appearance of five-time finalist Andy Murray, who lost to Roberto Bautista Agut in the first round in five sets. Murray had previously stated his intention to retire at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships.[5] However, five months after an operation on his hip Murray returned to competitive tennis, initially playing doubles.[6]
