Federer looked on course for victory when leading two sets to one but the Swiss was halted first by a thigh problem and then his gutsy opponent, as Raonic sealed a 6-3 6-7 (3/7) 4-6 7-5 6-3 triumph.

Raonic will be the first Canadian man in history to play in the final of a major tournament, where he will face either Britain's Andy Murray or Tomas Berdych on Sunday.
