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.[1] Since 2004 Hadiyanto and Yulianto have struggled to achieve top form. Second place finishes in the quadrennial Asian Games (2006); and the Japan (2007) and Korea (2008) Opens (now called Super Series events) have been their highest finishes in major international tournaments, though they won the Indonesian national title in 2007. In 2006 they also won a bronze medal at the Asian Badminton Championships in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

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