London, Nov 16 (IANS) World number 2 Novak Djokovic defeated Milos Raonic 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5) here to claim a berth in the semifinals of the ATP World Tour Finals.

The Serb needed 2 hours and 14 minutes during the match on Tuesday to dispatch the Canadian in the match at London's O2 Arena, Efe news reported.

Raonic can still reach the semifinals with a win against Belgium's Dominic Thiem, who beat Frenchman Gael Monfils 6-3, 1-6, 6-4 earlier Tuesday.

Djokovic, meanwhile, is poised to reclaim the number 1 ranking from Britain's Andy Murray if he reaches the final and wins.
