    Hafiz, in full flow with his attacking game...

    Here's how Rajes Paul describes Hafiz's win in The Star Sport, 18 April 2008:

    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, 21-14, 21-14 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 Kucoro 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.

    "My confidence was dented when Bao came from behind to win the first game. But I just threw whatever I had at him. Today my smashes and net play worked to my advantage."

    Congratulations to Hafiz.

    From the above description, one can conclude that Hafiz prevailed because he took more risk and concentrated on his attacking game to win.

    His physical condition must have improved because he could last almost an hour in this high level match and he attacked Bao into submission with his smashes.

    His mental strength has obviously returned too because he was able to forget his closely-fought first game loss to focus on his subsequent games for a win!

    His confidence has returned and this signals a good omen for Malaysia in the forthcoming Thomas Cup competion in Jakarta. :)

    this is more like it.... INA vs MAS sniping at each other...

    I'm sorry Indonesians, but you are going to be disappointed.

    Hafiz is going to unleash his power against Sony, who with all due respect, is a great player, but will not hold up against the tirade that is going to rain down upon him.

    First he will attempt to use his deception. However, with solid ground strokes Hafiz is going to overwhelm him, unleashing the power that has been hiding in him for 5 years.

    Even the strongest man cannot contain the Three Gorges Dam (or in this case, the Bakun Dam)...

    How is that for a metaphor?

    (I know it is exaggerated ;) ;) )

    That's not true man. Read HH's words again. HH "went all out" against BCL because BCL is 2nd MS for China and HH may need to face him in Thomas Cup. On the other hand, Sony is 1st MS for IND and is LCW's business. See the difference? :D

    well here is how it stands at the moment

    INA v MAS

    Sony v Lee (Well seeing Lee lost to Bonsak Sony might have a chance but Lee to take it)

    MK/HS v Uncles from MAS (Well interesting 50-50...this is the decider cos Kido-Hendra has no chance against Koo-Tan I hope they win this one)

    Taufik v Wong Chong Han (Taufik has the edge)

    Nova-Chandra v Koo-Tan (Hope Chandra makes an upset might happend we'll see)

    Simon-Yoyo (Simon might be able to take it against him...but this is 50-50)
