    Wow, I have to admit she looks gorgeous. I wouldn't even notice Sharapova if they were stood together.

    She´ve always been pretty hot to me. The thing is that if you watch that old videos of her playing, you could disagree. But you should take into consideration the fashion back then was pretty nasty.
    On the other hand, the problem with sabatini is that she quite a big woman. I think if she armwrestles with most of the men of this forum, she would beat the crap out of us.... :)

    She's a bit masculine, but very gorgeous as well. Classic lipstick lesbian. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Love Gabby.

    It happens that i used to train in the same facility that her (a looooong time ago), with her trainer (not coach) and (they called him "poncharello" as in TV series Chip´s) and I got some firts-handed info about her weight lifting. And, let me tell you FYI, that you would me amazed.
    So, I saw her much more than once in person out there.

    On the other hand, she might have lost weight since her retirement.

    Unless you like baby faced girls that are at best cute like Sharapova, truly beautiful women are also very hansome. You add some good personality and you have a true beauty you can write home about.

    mark philippoussis admitted in an interview - growing up he had 2 posters on his wall of players that inspired him to become a pro... 1 was a little poster of boris becker.... the other was a huge poster of gabriela Sabatini, lol

    She's a very talented player of the Graf era, was unlucky that she was part of that era, but was always the player that gave Steffi the most problems, because of the heavy topspin, miss that kind of women's matches, those women had power, but also gameplans, tactics and off courts rivalries. A good player, and a great person.

    I don't know where the rumor started that she's gay, but I'd actually like to know if there's some validity to it. I wouldn't kick her... well, you know what I'm saying. ;)


    As for the 'hot' factor, she's hot-test. I remember her giving out an award at one of the majors a couple years ago, Wimbledon maybe, and having to peel my jaw off the floor. I did not even know it was her at first -- she looked like a super model (which admittedly made me po'd, "WTF is a model doing on court? :) ) She's been hawking perfume since she retired and I've heard has some under the radar tennis clinics in S. America.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again -- one of my greatest fan memories is sitting baseline in Louis Armstrong circa 1988 watching Gabby play. It was NYC after dark, a cooler full of beer, and one of the best rear-end views a man will ever have. Sabbatini was a beautiful player. She deserves the Hall of Fame.

    Gaby has an androgynous face. Some men may find her face masculine. She is a very attractive person.

    Her game was one of the most graceful and classic I had ever seen. But it was not good enough to deal with Graff and Seles.

    I think she's gotten prettier with age too. She could have passed for Penelope Cruz in that first picture.

    No one today would have been able to deal with fit Graf and Seles. Never saw anyone but those two who hated losing so much and lived for tennis for real. They were tennis, Sharapova may look like she is really into the game, but she is nothing compared to Graf and Seles. Gaby was unlucky to have grown up in that -never-say-die-era, she would have fared better today.

    She's not cute. She sexy and alluring and, quite frankly, exquisite.


    I obviously dislike her immensely. In fact, I think I may have to go to Newport for her induction.

    Holy smoke, she's one of my favourite player. Some people they just look better with age. She was good looking back then, now is just...holy smoke. she might be gay, and it could be true, but I don't have to accept it.

    Does anyone have a link to an article substantiating that she is gay? Not that it changes my opinion of her- super player in her time! It's simply curiosity...cheers for the help!

    Yea, I don't believe it either. AAMOF, I just read somewhere online that this was based on a rumor purported by a german tabloid a couple of years ago.

    Sounds like urban legend to me.

    (and I say that with great sadness)

    I turned on the Sharapova/Golovin match and I did not even recognize Golovin. Maybe it was the camera angle but she looked huge, frumpy and her face looked like Brad Gilbert.

    Gabriela was my favorite player back in her playing days; she played a perfect all court game to beat Steffi at the Open. That being said, Tatiana does not deserve to be in this discussion.
