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 alone can do on the ATP tour. He and his brother Dann Battistone use a two-handled racquet designed by Lionel Burt of Naturaltennis racquet factory.
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.
Doubles: 11 (4–7)
