Andy Roddick's booming serve fired him into the Wimbledon semi-finals on Thursday. It what was always a tight contest, the US Open champion saw off Sjeng Schalken 7-6 7-6 6-3 to set up a meeting with Tim Henman's conqueror Mario Ancic.
 

Roddick did not drop his awesome service at all in the match, while Schalken lost his only once - in that third set.Roddick edged the first set on a tie-break, taking it 7-4. The second also saw no breaks of serve, and the Dutchman had his chance to the level the match in the breaker. He held three set points, one on his own serve, but failed to take them and Roddick finally took the tie-break 13-11.

Roddick also saved two break points at the start of the third and claimed the crucial break with a forehand winner. It was a long way back from there for Schalken and Roddick, who has yet to drop a set in the championsips, completed his straight sets win with that solitary break early in the third set.

i was able to catch a couple of games in the second and first set, and this match was greatly played on both parts. Roddick has done some incredible improvment since Gilbret took the rains.

I watched the game and he played really well. It looks like his name is on the title this year.
