Brian Battistone (born August 10, 1979)[1] is an American professional tennis player. He was born in Santa Barbara, California and currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.[2]

Battistone uses a volleyball-styled jump serve where he jumps in on court, switches racket hand in mid-air and hits the ball before landing on court, something he is alone on the ATP tour to do. He and his brother Dann Battistone use a two-handled racquet designed by Lionel Burt of Naturaltennis racquet factory.[3]

Battistone previously played tennis at a professional level, but quit in 2000. He returned to the circuit in 2007. He played in the 2010 US Open – Men's Doubles with Ryler Deheart. They were defeated by Rohan Bopanna (India) and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi (Pakistan) in Round 1. In October 2010 he won his first ATP Men's Doubles match, partnering Andreas Siljeström in the 2010 Stockholm Open.

Personal
