London, England – China remained on pace for a gold medal sweep in table tennis, as the women's and men's teams won semifinal matches Monday.
The women's team earned a 3-0 victory over South Korea on Monday, without dropping a single game. The win put the Chinese in the final against Japan, which defeated Singapore on Sunday in the other semifinal.
On the men's side, China claimed a 3-1 victory against Germany despite Zhang Jike -- the world No. 1 and singles gold medalist -- losing to Timo Boll. South Korea beat Hong Kong, 3-0, in the other semifinal.
The women's team medal matches are Tuesday, while the men take their turn Wednesday.
The Chinese won every event at the 2008 Beijing Games, while winning eight medals overall. At these Summer Games, Zhang has already won the men's singles gold medal, while Li Xiaoxia won the women's singles tournament.
