Make-or-break situation for Hafiz
HAFIZ Hashim needs to win the ongoing New Zealand International Challenge in Auckland and make at least the semi-finals of the Australian Open next week if he wants to improve his chances of qualifying for the World Championships.
Hafiz, currently ranked World No 33, must break into the top 24 by the end of April but good results are needed in order to make the cut.
Andre Kurniawan Tedjono of Indonesia should provide Hafiz with an early test in Auckland while Hu Yun of Hong Kong will be pushing the Malaysian hard in an expected semi-final clash.
Should Hafiz make it to the final, he is likely to face Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto in the final.
National back-up shuttlers Goh Soon Huat, Arif Latif and Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin have no opportunity to qualify for the World Championships as they are out of the top 100.
Soon Huat plays Brent Miller of New Zealand, Arif takes on third seed Wong Wing Ki of Hong Kong while Iskandar is up against Tommy in first round matches today.
Hafiz will face a tougher passage in the Australian Open in Melbourne where a host of Japanese shuttlers will aiming for his scalp.
Hafiz opens his campaign against Kazuteru Kozai of Japan and is likely to meet Andre Kurniawan again in the second round and victory will pit him against another difficult opponent in Sho Sasaki, also from Japan, in the third round.
A win will most likely see him playing Alamsyah Yunus of Indonesia and second seed Nguyen Tien Minh could be his semi-final opponent.
