Monte Carlo, Monaco: Novak Djokovic cruised past Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta 6-0, 6-1 to join Rafael Nadal, who racked up his 300th career clay court win, and Roger Federer, who saw off Lukas Rosol, in the quarterfinal of the Monte Carlo Masters.

World number one Nadal finished with an ace on match point to seal his landmark 6-1, 6-3 win over Italy's Andreas Seppi while and Federer saw off Czech Lukas Rosol.

Nadal became just the 11th man to crack 300 wins on clay -- the last to do so was Spaniard Carlos Moya, who ended his career in 2007 with 337 victories.

Nadal still has ground to cover on clay before approaching the all-time top winner on the surface -- Argentine Guillermo Vilas who compiled a record of 644-183 on the surface three decades ago.
