PARIS (AP) -- Novak Djokovic advanced to the French Open semifinals for the sixth time in his career, and he'll be looking for only his second win at that stage.

The second-seeded Serb beat eighth-seeded Milos Raonic of Canada 7-5, 7-6 (5), 6-4 Tuesday on Court Philippe Chatrier, the main stadium at Roland Garros.

Djokovic is a six-time major champion, but he still needs to win the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam.

He reached the semifinals at Roland Garros the last four years, but only made one final, losing to Rafael Nadal in 2012. He also made semifinal appearances in 2007 and '08.
