As a junior, Galimberti reached the final of the 1994 French Open, losing to Jacobo Díaz. En route, he defeated future top pros Stefan Koubek, Gustavo Kuerten, Mariano Zabaleta and Nicolas Lapentti. On the pro tour, Galimberti played singles mostly at Challenger level, while in doubles he won the 2005 ATP title in Milan, teaming with Daniele Bracciali, and reached two other ATP finals.
On February 18, 2008, Galimberti was suspended for 100 days and fined $35,000 (£17,808) after being found guilty of betting on tennis games between June 2003 to January 2006. It is not known whether Galimberti had bet on his own matches. Investigations into Galimberti's activities took place on August 2007, and were reviewed by a "independent anti-corruption hearing officer". Galimberti was the fourth Italian tennis player to be suspended after betting on other player's matches.
