    No conditions imposed on Hafiz for leaving BAM before contract expires
    REPORTS By RAJES PAUL PIX By S.S. KANESAN and M. AZHAR ARIF

    MOHD Hafiz Hashim (pic) has taken up an offer to play in the Indonesian league after the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) accepted his resignation from the national elite squad without imposing any conditions.
    The former All-England champion, whose game has stagnated for the last few years, was relieved that the BAM Council at their meeting yesterday gave him the green light to let him continue his badminton career as an independent player.

    “This is really good news for me,” said Hafiz, who declared that he wanted out of the BAM after losing to Chen Long of China in the first round of the Malaysia Open last Wednesday.

    A day later, he submitted an official letter of resignation but feared that he would be suspended by the BAM because he had a contract to run with the association until the 2012 London Olympics.
    Last year, back-up shuttler Tan Chun Seang was suspended from competing in international tournaments for two years for quitting when he still had a contract to run with the BAM. Chun Seang retracted his resignation and he is currently in the national set-up.

    The BAM president, Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, said that Hafiz had contributed a lot to the country and accepted his resignation without any conditions.

    ”He is also at the tailend of his career and we decided to part in a good way. I am sure that Hafiz will oblige if he is required for national duty,” he said.

    Hafiz, who is now ranked at No. 21 in the world, now has to chart his own fortunes, especially in seeking a fresh start to qualify for the London Olympics.

    “I have been invited to play in the Indonesia League. Even Taufik (Hidayat) has called me to take part. Now that I am a free agent, I have decided to feature in the league (scheduled for Feb 19-27 in Jakarta),” he said.
    Hafiz will also play in the National Grand Prix Finals, which will be held in Kuala Terengganu from Feb 16-19.

    “My resignation from the national team takes effect on Feb 1 and I will play under the BAM banner for the last time in the South Korea Open,” said Hafiz before leaving for Seoul yesterday.


    “When I return, I will look for new sponsors and a club to play for.”

    Just wondering...

    Why the BAM president, Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, said that Hafiz had contributed a lot to the country and accepted his resignation without any conditions, but Misbun's resignation wasn't accepted?

    i think because hafiz has maxed out his contribution as he himself succinctly put it in the above article and BAM seems to agree. misbun, on the hand wants to leave with job not complete and BAM still believes he has much more to contribute..... hence the conflict

    May be he needs a new environment... a new challenge... Not sure how he can survive if he failed to find sponsorships... It's not like he will win many matches in INA leagues and bag the big money there....

    I dont think Hafiz will have problem finding sponsor if more unknown players can get sponsor.

    After all, hafiz is weell known in msia

    For hafiz, it is important to do the fundamentals right, like stamina, speed, strokes, smash, net and defence. So many unforced errors.

    When you can even get the fundamental right, no point playing riskier fancy games. Becomes a laughing stock for opponents. Hope this helps a little in making his return, if he really means it.

    He and the backup doubles should really be honest with themselves on the effort. I don't think the coaches can help much from now.
