In this very first edition of our new #epicthrowback series of blog articles, we throw you readers back to the 2005 Australian Open mens' singles semifinal match between Roger Federer and Marat Safin. It is an adrenaline-pumping match during which Federer had match points, and historically significant for being the last grand slam event where either Federer, Nadal or Djokovic failed to reach the finals, until the 2014 US Open mens' singles event. Sit back, and enjoy!
