Andy Roddick believes his Queen's Club semi-final with Lleyton Hewitt will be the perfect litmus test of his Wimbledon prospects. Defending champion
Roddick and three-time winner Hewitt clash in Friday's last four of the Stella Artois Championships after enjoying comfortable quarter-final victories
Hewitt remained on course for a record-equalling fourth title by beating Russia's Igor Andreev 6-3 7-5, while Roddick may have broken his own record
for the fastest recorded serve on his way to a 6-3 6-3 victory over Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan.
Andy Roddick fired the fastest serve of all time in his quarter-final win over Paradorn Srichaphan at Queen's. Roddick broke his own world record by
1mph as he produced an unreturnable bullet of 153mph. The new record will not be made official until the speed has been checked and verified.
Roddick has lost to Hewitt in all three previous meetings between the pair, including a five-set thriller in the US Open quarter-finals in 2001. The
tournament has already lost second seed Guillermo Coria, third seed Andre Agassi, and fourth seed Tim Henman.
