THE much anticipated semi-finals showdown between Hafiz Hashim and Wong Choong Hann will not materialise as the latter, down with a fever, conceded a walkover in the quarter-finals of the Kedah Open in Alor Star yesterday.

Hafiz, the second seed, had to work hard for his 21-16, 18-21, 21-16 win over 2010-2012 project player Chong Wei Feng in the quarter-finals which lasted for 45 minutes.

LOCAL tournaments may not be Lee Chong Wei’s priority anymore but he was in no mood to allow his four-year unbeaten run to come to an end as he advanced to the second round of the Kedah Open in Alor Star convincingly yesterday.

Chong Wei, the top seed, wasted little time in securing a 21-7, 21-9 win over back-up shuttler and training mate Lok Chong Chieh in 28 minutes. Chong Wei, after winning his fifth consecutive national grand prix crown in Kuala Terengganu in Janaury, stated that he planned to skip local events to focus his attention on the Beijing Olympics.

ALOR STAR: Veteran national singles shuttler Wong Choong Hann has described the Proton Kedah Open, which begins today at the Kedah Badminton Association (KBA) Hall here, as an interesting distraction. 

He felt that the Open had come at the right time for the national players to recover from the effects of the high-pressured World Championships in Kuala Lumpur last month.

HAFIZ Hashim’s decline in form has thrown the battle to clinch the second spot for the Beijing Olympics wide open and Wong Choong Hann wants to make the most of it.

Hafiz, a mainstay in the top 10 for more than a year, is currently ranked World No 15 and could slip further if his current poor form continues, but Choong Hann, on the other hand, has seen his performance improve since recovering from an achilles tendon operation last November.
