Description:
Potito Starace (born July 14, 1981 in Cervinara) is an Italian professional tennis player on the ATP Tour. He achieved his career-high ranking of 27th on October 15, 2007. He is currently 47th in the ATP rankings. One of the most memorable moments of Starace's career was when he made the men's doubles quarterfinals of the 2006 French Open with Alberto Martín. They defeated eighth-seeded Simon Aspelin and Todd Perry along the way, before walking over to second seeds Jonas Björkman and Max Mirnyi.

He represented Italy at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where he lost to Raphael Nadal in the first round.

Betting scandal

Following Alessio di Mauro's 9 month ban in November 2007, Starace and Daniele Bracciali were each fined and given short suspensions from playing. Starace received a fine of £21,400 and a 6 weeks ban from January 1, 2008. All of the players were Italian. None of the bets pertained to matches they were involved in or had any stake in.
