The Bryans, who returned from Beijing four years ago with a pair of bronze medals, won 6-4 6-4 in less than an hour and will face either Spain's David Ferrer and Feliciano Lopez or another French pair, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Michael Llodra, for gold.

The Czech Republic women's pairing of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka enjoyed a shock 6-1 7-6 victory over number one seeds Raymond and Huber.

Defending women's doubles champions Serena and Venus Williams of the US will await them in the final if they beat Russians Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova later.
