A clinical Milos Raonic stormed past Gael Monfils 6-3 3-6 6-3 6-4 under the closed roof at Rod Laver Arena to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open for the first time Wednesday.I thought I played some great tennis, whether indoors was a factor I don't know, it definitely gave my mind some peace".Monfils, at 25th in the world the lowest ranked player in the last eight, converted one of only two break points he had in the match to snatch the second set and made only 17 unforced errors.Although he serve-volleyed on fewer occasions than he had in his fourth round upset of former champion Stan Wawrinka, Raonic came forward when he needed to and won 31 of 46 points at the net.It was with a final huge forehand for his 47th winner after two hours and 17 minutes, however, that he set up a last four meeting with British second seed Andy Murray.
