But our SEA teams was challenged as three teams reached the quarterfinal round. These were teams from Indonesia (Ramadan/Prabadi & Rachmawan/Asfiya) and Thailand's duo of Inkiew and Padsawud.

Of the three teams who advanced in the quarterfinals, only the pair of Ade Candra Rachmawan and Mohammad Asfiya of Indonesia won and advanced to the semifinal round. The duo defeated Jefferson and Cherif of Qatar in a thrilling match, 21-17, 7-21 and 15-13. These two pairs battled already for the gold medal match a couple of days ago in the SMM AVC Beach Tour EST Cola 2nd Satun-Pak Bara Open 2017. Qatar won the gold medal while Indonesia settled for silver medal in that previous tournament . 

And because of the turn of event and sweet revenged of Indonesia against Qatar, Rachmawan and Asfiya faced the pair of McHugh and Schumann from Australia in the semifinal match. It was Indonesia's dominance who prevailed in the semifinals as Australia surrendered two sets to the red and white flag, 21-18 and 21-16.
In the gold medal match for men, Indonesia battled a strong team from Iran. All sets were closely tight but Iran's Rahman Raoufi and Bahman Salemi Injehboron  kept their sight for victory and win the title, 22-20, 12-21 and 15-12. Indonesia settled for silver medal.

In the women's event, only two teams from Southeast Asia advanced in the quarterfinal round. These were Dhita Juliana and Putu Dini Utami of Indonesia and the tandem of Rumpairuet Numwong and Khanittha Hongpak of Thailand.

Dhita and Putu defeated the duo of Suzuki and Ishii of Japan, 21-19 and 21-14 to advance in the semifinal round. While Thailand's duo of Numwong and Hongpak was unlucky to reach the semifinals as they were defeated by Bell & Laird of Australia, 21-16 and 21-15.

Indonesia's journey to the finals was stopped by China's Wang and Yue, 16-21, 18-21 putting them to play against another semifinalist loser Australia (Bawden/Clancy) for a bronze medal match.

          SEAG Schedule Change

          KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – It has taken years of meticulous planning but the 2017 Southeast Asian Games was forced to make a last-minute change to its schedule after organisers discovered its closing ceremony clashed with an important annual religious holiday.

          Just months before the start of the biennial event in August, authorities announced the closing ceremony in Muslim-majority Malaysia will be a day earlier than scheduled, due to the clash with Islamic festival Hari Raya Haji.

          The celebration will now be held on August 30, instead of August 31 which is the eve of the key holiday for Muslims, Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said.

          Khairy told reporters on Tuesday that the change of date would not be an issue for the games which begin on August 19.
          “The closing date of the SEA Games has been brought forward by one day, from August 31 to August 30. This is for us to celebrate a (Muslim) religious event … which falls on August 31,’’ the minister said.
