PARIS (AP) Milos Raonic secured his maiden win over Roger Federer to book his place in the semifinals of the Paris Masters on Friday.
The seventh-seeded Raonic, who had never beaten Federer in six previous meetings, hit 21 aces and lost only 15 points on his serve to complete a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win, keeping alive his chances of qualifying for the ATP Finals in London.
Raonic ended Federer's 14-match winning streak but the Swiss has still a chance to overtake top-ranked Novak Djokovic in the race for the year-end No. 1 spot.
