Hafiz ends title drought

BASEL: Malaysia’s Mohd Hafiz Hashim stunned top seed Peter Gade-Christensen of Denmark to win the men’s singles title in the US$80,000 Swiss Open badminton championships here yesterday. 

After a runner-up finish at the German Open two weeks ago and losing in the All-England third round to Japanese Shoji Sato last week, the 23-year-old Hafiz finally got it right this time. The second seed outclassed Gade-Christensen 17-14, 15-10 in 54 minutes to win Malaysia’s first title in the World Grand Prix Circuit this season.
