    If Hafiz wins here, we will be taken back to 2003 where he won his AE title.

    With his poor physical condition of late, the 26-year-old Hafiz entered the court as the underdog but he turned on the power to beat world No. 3 Bao Chunlai of China 21-23, 21-15, 21-15 in a 57-minute third round match yesterday.
    Hafiz, in full flow with his attacking game, tore apart Chunlai to set up a clash against World Championships runner-up Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia in the quarter-finals.
    Boosted by the win, Hafiz said his morale was high ahead of the Thomas Cup Finals, which will be held in Jakarta from May 11-18.
    “This is really, really satisfying. I wanted to prove that my preparation is in order for the Thomas Cup Finals and that is why I went all out against Bao,” said Hafiz, who immediately called his wife Nadzatul Shima to tell her about his conquest.
    “My confidence was dented when he (Bao) came from behind to win the first game. But I just threw whatever I had at him. Today (yesterday), my smashes and net play worked to my advantage.”

    I am certainly very happy to see Hafiz beat Bao but a bit conservative to claim Hafiz is back. Is only one match and for Hafiz to beat any top notch player, every departments of his game have to work to perfection and did this time. If Hafiz able to overcome Soni then we can take a sip of our "kopi-o" and said "He is back" :D

    Hafiz played right strategy to overcome BCL who is a moody-type shuttler, inconsistent and only sometimes he can produce impressive performance. Or based on Hafiz's opinion through BWF website :

    YONEX-SUNRISE ASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

    Boonsak, Hafiz slay top guns

    its all normal. people win and lose, some win more and some lose more. we've gotten quite used to Hafiz losing, that is why his win over BaoCL would seem a miracle. nevertheless, its a good effort.
    remember Boonsak winning the Singapore Open last year?
