Gade, seeded third, had a 21-11, 21-12 win over Hong Kong's Yan Kit Chan to continue his record of not having dropped a game in this year's tournament.

Fifth-seeded Lin of China - winner of Olympic gold in Beijing last year - beat Dicky Palyama 21-11, 21-11 to end the run of the Dutchman who caused a first-round upset by beating China's Bao Chunlai.
