CareerEdit

Yulianto is a men's doubles specialist. In 2004, he and partner Luluk Hadiyanto won four top tier tournaments on the international circuit, the Indonesia, Korea, Singapore, and Thailand Opens. They gained a number one world ranking that year despite an early loss in the 2004 Athens Olympics.[3] Since 2004, Hadiyanto and Yulianto have struggled to achieve top form. In 2006, they captured a bronze medal at the Asian Championships in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Second place finishes in the quadrennial 2006 Asian Games; the 2007 Japan and 2008 Korea Opens have been their highest finishes in major international tournaments, though they won the Indonesian national title in 2007.

After a disappointing 21–19, 14–21, 14–21, first round loss against the Japanese Keita Masuda and Tadashi Ohtsuka at the 2008 Olympics with Luluk Hadiyanto, the couple split partnership. Yulianto then partnered Hendra Aprida Gunawan till 2012. They reached the finals at the 2009 Philippines Open and were also runners-up at the 2011 Malaysia and Thailand Opens. At the 2012 Thomas Cup, Yulianto then played with Mohammad Ahsan defending the Indonesian colors. After this event, he played with Tri Kusumawardana at the 2012 Victor Indonesian International Challenge. Thereafter Yulianto progressed as an independent player for Indonesia with experienced partner Markis Kido winning the Dutch Open and reaching semi-finals at the Macau and 2013 Swiss Open. After a disappointing third round loss at the 2013 BWF World Championships, Yulianto and Kido split up the partnership. Yulianto then started a partnership with Japanese player Shintaro Ikeda, this partnership lasted till the Indonesian Open in June 2014. Thereafter Yulianto partnered his compatriot Yonathan Suryatama Dasuki.
