Professional career

2012: Grand Slam doubles debut

In July, Christian made it to the quarterfinals of the Lexington, Kentucky Challenger event.[1] Christian was awarded a wildcard into the 2012 US Open to play doubles alongside Ryan Harrison, where they reached the quarterfinals.


Earlier in the year he reached the quarterfinals, semifinals, the final, and won, respectively, the four Futures events in which he participated. He failed to qualify in Indian Wells, losing in the first round of qualifying to Ernests Gulbis, who made a deep run to the fourth round after qualifying. However, he did take a set off Gulbis. Harrison won his first ATP World Tour match against Alejandro Falla at the BB&T Atlanta Open. He then lost in the next round to John Isner in three tight sets.


Harrison spent 2014 and 2015 recovering from several surgeries.

2016: Grand Slam singles debut

Harrison reached the final round of qualifying at the 2016 US Open after beating Luke Saville and second seed Konstantin Kravchuk in two three-set matches. He made it into main draw after beating Steven Diez also in three-set match. He was one set down at all three matches in qualifying. He lost in the first round to Paul-Henri Mathieu in straight sets.


Christian Harrison is known for being resilient and a strong competitor, with 2021 starting with great success. He qualified for the 2021 Delray Beach Open, starting the week ranked No. 789 in the world.[2] He beat number 1 seed Cristian Garín[3] and advanced all the way to the semifinals,[4] where he was defeated by fourth seed Hubert Hurkacz,[5] who would later win the title. As a result he climbed 444 positions in the rankings to a World No. 345 ranking on 18 January 2021 and he got five ATP Tour match victories thus far, with three of them in Delray Beach, where he also won two matches in qualifying.
