Christian Garin Medone (born 30 May 1996) is a Chilean professional tennis player ranked no. 397 in the world, and 5th in the ITF rankings. He is the youngest Chilean player to win a high-level ATP match, defeating Dusan Lajovic at just 16 years and 8 months old, in the first round of the 2013 VTR Open.[2]

Junior career[edit]

In 2010, he won the U14 world championship with Bastián Malla and Sebastián Santibañez, defeating Italy in the final. The next year, with only 14 years, Garin won his first ITF U18 title in the Pascuas Bowl, a Grade 5 tournament.[3] In 2012, with 16 years, he reached the U-18 "top ten", after winning the Eddie Herr Tournament (G1) in singles and the Yucatán Cup (G1), the Eddie Herr (G1) and the Orange Bowl (GA) in doubles with Nicolás Jarry.

At the 2013 French Open, Garin reached his first Junior Grand Slam finals in both singles and doubles. He dropped only one set on his way to the singles final, meeting Alexander Zverev of Germany whom he defeated in straight sets to win his first Junior Grand Slam title. In the doubles event, partnered by fellow Chilean Nicolás Jarry, they faced Kyle Edmund of Great Britain, and Portuguese Frederico Ferreira Silva, to whom they lost in 2 sets.
