No World Tour title, no problem for Aaron-Wooi Yik

KUALA LUMPUR: Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik have yet to win a World Tour title, but the men's doubles pair do not like making empty promises.

Instead, the former world champions have vowed to give their best and try hard to reach the semi-finals or final in every tournament.

Aaron-Wooi Yik bagged their third consecutive major medal when they settled for bronze at the World Championships in Copenhagen last week.

In 2021, Aaron-Wooi Yik won bronze at the Tokyo Olympics before becoming world champions in Japan.

Surprisingly, a World Tour title continues to elude the pair.

"We are unsure when we will end our World Tour title wait, but what we can promise is we will give our very best and try to reach at least the semi-finals or final in our remaining tournaments," said Wooi Yik.

Aaron-Wooi Yik will compete in the China Open next week, followed by the Hong Kong Open.

Seeded fourth in Changzhou, the Malaysians will open their campaign against South Korea's Choi Sol Gyu-Kim Won Ho.

Barring any upsets, Aaron-Wooi Yik will likely face China's He Ji Ting-Zhou Hou Dong in the second round.

Also in the same half of the draw are world No. 8 Ong Yew Sin-Teo Ee Yi, who Aaron-Wooi Yik could face in the quarter-finals.

Aaron-Wooi Yik's best showing on the World Tour circuit this season was when they reached the final of the Super 1000 Indonesia Open in June.
