David Nalbandian produced one of the best ever comebacks to defeat Roger Federer in the final in 2005.

Nalbandian had lost to Federer in the round-robin stage and was looking to avenge his defeat.

The final was a 5 set encounter and Federer won the first two sets. However, Nalbandian fought back to win the third and the fourth, during which Federer had called for the trainer as well.

Federer was serving for the match in the fifth but was broken despite being 30-0 up. Nalbandian then went on to win the tie-break and his first ever Tour Finals.

Result: Nalbandian d. Federer 6-7, 6-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6.

Result: Murray d. Raonic 5-7, 7-6, 7-6
