PARIS (AP) Milos Raonic perfectly timed his maiden win over Roger Federer.

The seventh-seeded Raonic, who had never beaten the 17-Grand Slam champion in six previous meetings, hit 21 aces and lost only 15 points on his serve to complete a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win to reach the semifinals of the Paris Masters on Friday.

It was a must-win match for the big-serving Canadian, who kept alive his chances of qualifying for the ATP Finals after finding his best tennis at the right time. He will be guaranteed a birth in London if he wins the title in Paris or David Ferrer loses to Kei Nishikori later Thursday in the final quarterfinal.
