Brisbane - Milos Raonic became the first man to secure a semifinal spot at the Brisbane International with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Lucas Pouille.

The fourth-seeded Raonic, who lost the 2015 Brisbane final to Roger Federer, relied on his big serve to dictate play against No 78-ranked Pouille.

In the semi-finals, he'll meet the winner of Friday's later quarter-final between second-second Kei Nishikori and local hope Bernard Tomic.
