Chinese beach volleyball men's duo Wu Penggen/Xu Linyin remained unbeaten Thursday to advance to the next round.

The host team beat Spanish pair Pablo Herrera/Raul Mesa in two straight sets 21-13, 21-15.

"From the very beginning we were ahead of them in points. Compared with the last match we were more relaxed," commented the 1.98-meter Wu after the match.

"We had a good start, which put a lot of pressure on our opponents. We had very good rhythm, organization and momentum," said Xu on their performance in the match.

Herrera said they could not resist the attacks of the Chinese in most of the time and the 2.02-meter Xu was the biggest headache for them. Mesa said the Chinese controlled the rhythm of match.

The Chinese team had 28 attack points, 5 blocks and 1 ace.

"They are very strong team. We tried our best to play to our best standard but we still lost," Herrera said.

With three preliminary wins, the Chinese team will meet in the next round with one of the last-placed top 16 teams.

On their next match, Xu said, "We don't think much about the points and medals. We will adjust ourselves according to the next opponent and be well prepared for the next match."

Beijing Olympics beach volleyball tournament will wrap up its preliminaries Thursday and the last 16 will be decided. The draw for the composition of top 16 matches will be held later Thursday.

Elimination matches begin Friday.
