He is currently 77th 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 reached 2 career ATP finals, both in 2007.

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.
