China won all gold medals on offer at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and is assured of sweeping the podium here in both men's and women's singles.
Wang Liqin upset Olympic gold medalist Ma Lin in the semifinals Monday but was no match for the Beijing Olympic silver medalist in Tuesday's final at Yokohama Arena.
