2005 Australian Open

Lleyton Hewitt v Andy Roddick


3-6 7-6 (7-3) 7-6 (7-4) 6-1



Lleyton Hewitt was at his aggressive, fist-pumping best Friday, withstanding 31 aces by Andy Roddick in a

3-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4), 6-1 victory to reach the Australian Open final.

Hewitt fought back from a set down and trailed in both tie-breaks but would not be denied, thrilling the Melbourne

 crowd with a typically battling effort.

Hewitt dropped to his knees once his victory was secure, kissing the court and hitting a ball high into the air as the

crowd roared.
