Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik's quest for their fourth World Tour final appearance ended on Saturday in Paris.

The world No. 8 pair bowed out in the last four of the French Open 21-14 10-21 22-24 to South Korea's former world champions Ko Sung Hyun-Shin Baek Cheol.

In the match, the Malaysians surrendered an 18-13 lead and didn't manage to find the finish against the wily Koreans.

Aaron Chia said: “We still find it difficult to keep our nerves in check when we’re leading and this has cost us dearly. With such a lead, we could have sealed it. We have to overcome this problem soon. We can’t afford such lapses in concentration.”
