Eight-time champ wins 300th tour-level clay-court match while Federer and Djokovic also through to Monte Carlo quarters.
Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic demonstrated their superior class on clay as they eased into the quarter-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters.
Claycourt wizard Nadal barely broke a sweat in his 6-1, 6-3 thrashing of Italy’s Andreas Seppi.
The victory makes the Spaniard only the 11th player in history to notch up 300 tour-level clay-court wins. He next faces sixth-seeded David Ferrer who beat Russia’s Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-2.
Fourth seed Federer recovered from a break in the first set to beat Czech Lukas Rosol 6-4 6-1.
Champion Djokovic dropped just one game as he demolished Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta 6-0 6-1 to continue his title defence in the principality.
