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.
Hafiz had been busy since the birth of Hanna Sofileah in November — keeping late nights with his wife Nadzatul Shima Mohd Nazari to take care of their baby girl.
