Cristian Garin's Game Style

Server.png

Server

Medium

Even though Cristian Garin takes an edge against his rivals by making 10% more aces/service winners than them, he cannot be regarded as a true Server because his ratio of free points with this shot is slightly below the average of the ATP players (29%). However, on clay against baseliner with a rather weak Serve this shot often gives him an edge.

Puncher

Medium-high

As a clay court specialist, Cristian Garin can be regarded as a dominant Puncher. However, when compared with his rivals he takes an edge with the forehand making fewer errors than them (for the same ratio of points). Nonetheless, he is still aggressive with this shot and especially with the forehand cross.

Tempo Player

Medium-high

From the back of the court, Cristian Garin is not only a Puncher, he can also play in Tempo with his flat backhand. When compared with his rivals he makes on average 30% more points but also slightly more errors with this shot. We can conclude that he is dangerous baseliner capable of generating pace on both sides.

Medium

In total, 15% of Christian Garin's points are won at the net and this result is in the average of the ATP players. He often follows his Punching forehand or his Tempo backhand to the net when he has a chance.

Medium

As we saw with the forehand, Cristian Garin takes an edge by being more solid than his rivals. It means that besides being a Puncher (or Tempo player), he can also Retrieve in an effective way. In total, 43% of his points are won by the errors of his rivals and this result is in the average.
