Taipei: For a long time it seemed we would not able to see the 2003 All England champion Muhammad Hafiz Hashim to compete at the highest level of badminton anymore, proving he still had plenty of fuel in his tank, the 32-year-old Malaysian sprung two surprises on Tuesday at the Chinese Taipei Open qualifying round when he defeated compatriot Jimmy Tay Yu Lun 21-17 , 15-21, 21-7 in 50 minutes, and sparked a strong comeback to closed out a tough victory over Lin Chia Hsuan of Chinese Taipei in the second qualifying match with 18-21, 21-17, 22-20 in 55 minutes. Hafiz is set to square off with Jeon Hyeok-Jin of Korea on Wednesday. Jeon Hyeok-Jin is going to be a tough nut to crack for Hafiz, since he has proved his worth by pulling off an upset triumph over world No. 9 Son Wan Ho at last week's 2015 Gwangju Summer Universiade men's singles final.Hafiz plays much better than a lot of players in the Malaysia national team.

Taiwan: After claiming back-to-back titles in both US Open and Canada Open recently, and after welcoming his newborn son last week, badminton superstar Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia will again be the sentimental favourite when the main draw of Chinese Taipei Open gets under way on Wednesday. Unlike his recent two tournaments at North America, Lee could face world No. 1 Chen Long of China in quarter-finals, and could possibly set up a mouthwatering final clash with his nemesis Lin Dan in the final.Lee Chong Wei speaks to the media during a press conference at Chinese Taipei Open on Tuesday.
