Andy Roddick hit a record 155 mph serve in his 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 win over Vladimir Voltchkov on Friday to give the United States a 1-0 lead over Belarus in the Davis Cup semifinals.

Roddick's serve in the final game of the match eclipsed his own record of 153 mph set at the Queen's Club tournament in England in June. Even with the record speed, Voltchkov managed to get his racket on the ball but was unable to return it.

The crowd stood and cheered when the record speed of the serve was shown.

"I hit a good one. That's about it," Roddick said. "I think it's fun for the fans. To me it's still a point. It's something I'll be able to tell people about one day. But I'm happier with the win -- serving well overall."
