Kuala Lumpur: The 2003 All England winner Muhammad Hafiz Hashim has made his case to the Badminton Association of Malaysia of becoming the women’s singles assistant coach to Tey Seu Bock, who was recently appointed as the head coach for the Malaysian women’s singles players.
The president of BAM Mohamad Norza Zakaria told reporters that Hashim met with BAM’s Technical Director Morten Frost Hansen on Tuesday but there’s no guarantee Hashim will be hired as the assistant coach.
“Morten Frost feels the women’s singles program needs an assistant coach who will be there to serve the head coach and the program. That’s why he met with Mohamad Hafiz and I will discuss with Morten Frost about the interview result tomorrow,” said Zakaria.
Mohamad Hafiz has been known for his cool approach on the court regardless of whomever he’s playing against. He is the younger brother of Roslin Hashim, a former world No.1 and has been playing for Petaling Jaya Badminton Club in the Purple League for the past two years.
