HALLE, Germany (AP) German wild card Peter Gojowczyk knocked the third-seeded Milos Raonic out in the second round at the Gerry Weber Open by 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday.

Gojowczyk, the world No. 120, saved both break points he faced and won in 1 hour, 12 minutes to book a quarterfinal with Colombia's Alejandro Falla, who beat Dutchman Robin Haase 7-6 (1), 6-4.

Former champion Philipp Kohlschreiber advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-2, 6-4 win over French qualifier Pierre-Hugues Herbert.
