Olympic champion Lin Dan and world number one Lee Chong Wei moved one stepcloser to a meeting after they each booked a quarterfinal berth at the China Masters badminton super series here on Thursday.

Beijing Olympics and world champion Lin beat Hsien Yu Hsin of Chinese Taipei 21-15, 21-19 after Malaysian ace Lee Chong Wei sailed past Rajiv Ouseph of England 21-15, 21-8 in just 26 minutes.

Lee, Beijing Olympics runner-up, said he hoped to face Lin.

"I was doing well today and I wished I could carry on the form to go further in the top half," said the 27-year-old. "Hopefully Ican play Lin Dan in the semifinals."

In the mixed doubles, China captured seven of the eight spots in the third round.

As South Korea's top seed and Beijing Olympics winners Lee YongDae and Lee Hyo Jung pulled out of the event due to Lee's injury, Ko Sung Hyun/Ha Jung Eun became the sole non-Chinese pair in the third round after overcoming fellow South Koreans Shin Baek Cheol/Jang Ye Na 21-23, 21-11, 21-16. They next meet Beijing Games bronze medallists He Hanbin/Yu Yang.

In women's singles, world number one Zhou Mi from Hong Kong, China raced to win the second round 21-7, 21-17 over Japanese Shizuka Uchida but Hong Kong's Wang Chen retired due to knee injury, sending 19-year-old Malaysian Golden Grand Prix winner Wang Shixian into the third round.
