Gabriela Sabatini Wiki, Husband, Gay, Lesbian, Net Worth

During her decorated career, American former tennis player Gabriela Beatriz Sabatani was regarded as one of the exceptional players of her generation.

Starting her tennis career at the age of six and retiring in her mid-twenties, she could win 27 singles titles and 14 doubles titles, including the Women's Doubles title at Wimbledon 1998 (with partner Steffi Graf from Germany) and Women's Single title at the US Open 1990.

Gaby initially came into the spotlight at the age of 13 in 1983 when she won seven out of eight junior tournaments she could participate. In 1984, she was ranked as the no. 1 junior player. Later in 1985, she became the youngest player to compete in the French Open at the age 15 but lost during her semifinal to Chris Evert Lloyd, who would later in her career turn out to be no. 1 player in the world.

Sabatani reached her first Grand Slam Final at the1998's US Open and faced Steffi Graf. Unfortunately, she lost to Graf, who was in great form that year. In the summer of 1988, she represented her country in the Olympic games held in Seoul and won a silver medal in the Women’s Single event.

Her career later took a plunge in 1989. The year she failed to win a single title. In 1990, after she lost the French Open, she hired Carlos Kimayr, a top pro-Brazilian tennis player as her coach. With his support and coaching, she would return to the tennis world with a bang.

Eventually, in 1990, she faced Steffi Graf again, but this time Gaby defeated her nemesis in two sets and won her first Grand Slam title. Similarly, in 1991, she proved to be a strong player winning five tournaments in the first half of the year. She also won 5 championships in 1992 but didn't win any Grand Slam title.

The same titleless feat of 1989 repeated in Gaby's career in 1993. She didn't win any titles for 29 months. She finally ended her winless streak when she won the 1994 WTA Tour Championship. She then continued to lose matches throughout 1995 and played her last match in October 1996.

And in 1996, at the age of 26, Gabriela decided to retire from professional tennis and focus on her perfume brand Gabriela Sabatani for Women, which she had launched in the1980's.
