Compare his Stats with the ones of the Other South American Players here

As a clay court specialist, Christian 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 (and not more points). He is still aggressive with this shot and especially with the forehand cross.

Puncher / Medium-high

Even though Christian Garin takes an edge against his rivals by making 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 average. However, on clay against baseliner with a rather weak Serve  this shot gives him an edge. 

Serve / Medium

In total, 15% of Christian Garin's points are won at the net and this results 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.

Offensive / Medium

Christian 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 50% more points but also 50% more errors with this shot. We can conclude that he is dangerous player from the back of the court capable of genereting pace on both sides.

Tempo / Medium-high

Christian Garin is more an aggressive baseliner than a Retriever. However, as a clay court specialist he can play with topspin on the forehand side and is effective in the long rallies (over 8 shots). As we saw previously he also takes an edge with the forehand against his rivals making on average fewer errors than them.
