Dubai - World number one Novak Djokovic recorded his 700th career win on Wednesday when he cruised past Tunisia's Malek Jaziri and into the Dubai quarter-finals.

Djokovic won 6-1, 6-2 and will face Spain's Feliciano Lopez for a spot in the last four.

The 28-year-old Serb moves to 12th on the all-time list which is headed by Jimmy Connors of the United States who racked up 1,254 in his career.

Djokovic is the third active player to pass the milestone, following in the footsteps of Roger Federer (1,067) and Rafael Nadal (775).
