Raonic advances in Halle, Dolgopolov out
Raonic made short work of the 217th-ranked qualifier in the second round of the grass-court tournament, breaking Ze in the fourth game and taking just 20 minutes to win the first set, which he ended with his fifth ace.
The 21st-ranked Raonic had nine aces in the 52-minute win.
He will face 16-time Grand Slam winner Federer or Germany's Florian Mayer, who meet on Thursday.
