KUALA LUMPUR: Singles shuttler Mohd Hafiz Hashim has given himself one more year to try and salvage his badminton career.

And, this time, the person behind his comeback is his new-born baby girl.

Hafiz resumed training a week ago and will compete in the back-to-back Malaysian and Korean Opens.

The Malaysian Open, which serves as the season opener of the Super Series, will begin on Wednesday at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil and it will be followed with the Open in Seoul.

PETALING JAYA: It will be an all-Klang Valley final in the 100Plus National Junior inter-state mixed team badminton championships.

Defending champions Kuala Lumpur advanced beating Kedah 6-3 in the semi-finals at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara yesterday. And Selangor qualified with a 6-5 win over Johor.

While it was smooth sailing for KL against Kedah, Selangor were made to slog by surprise package Johor before clinching their winning point through the mixed doubles pair of Muhd Syawal Ismail-Yap Harn Xin, who beat Zairul Anuar-Nurul Intan Jaffar 21-12, 21-11.

It was heartbreak for Johor, who had upset last year’s runners-up and second seeds Penang in their opening Group B match before beating Sabah 8-3 for a place in the semi-finals.
