WIMBLEDON, England — Andy Roddick has reached his fourth Wimbledon semifinal by beating 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-7 (10), 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4.

The American broke Hewitt to lead 5-4 in the final set and then served out the match Wednesday. He finished the match with 43 aces.

Roddick will next face third-ranked Andy Murray.
