The above picture is where Hafiz Hashim used to be the hope of the nation. Winning the prestigious All England which Malaysia has been waiting for more then 10 years. Hafiz did it in style by defeating Chen Hong in the finals in straight games.
Indra Gunawan was Hafiz coach then. All the hope and joy Hafiz brought to the nation was short lived. After winning the All England title, Hafiz has never regained his status as a world beater. Hafiz is beaten by unknown players left and right.
In short, that little success has got into his head!
Hafiz Hashim did it once again this time at his own home court at the Proton Malaysia Open Super Series 2010. Hafiz lost in the first round to Taiwanese player Hsieh Yu Hsing.
I am not going into details about that match but i see that many are hoping that Hafiz Hashim will wake up from his slumber and lead Malaysia’s charge in the international scene and also the Thomas Cup.
Don’t be too optimistic about this chap. He will disappoint you like he has done in the passed. Hope he will wake up from his sleep and do the nation proud.
Do you think this guy still has hope in him?
