TOKYO (AP) -- Third-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada eased into the semifinals of the Japan Open with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Lukas Lacko of Slovakia on Friday.

Raonic broke Lacko's serve three times and hit 11 aces under the roof at Ariake Colosseum to set up a semifinal against Ivan Dodig of Croatia.

The 22-year-old Raonic, ranked 11th in the world, is coming off a win in the Thailand Open on Sunday and will be seeking his third title of 2013. He lost in the final of last year's Japan Open to local favorite Kei Nishikori.

Dodig beat Jarkko Nieminen of Finland 6-2, 7-6 (3).

Top-seeded Juan Martin del Potro was playing Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine later Friday.
