I always thought it was interesting Graf and Sabatini played doubles together. If I remember, it was thought at the time to be a WTA scheme to get more people to watch doubles, but I bet they liked playing doubles together. As teenagers they were both very shy, so didn't really expect each to be social off court--Gaby didn't even speak much English. Maybe that's what Graf meant, she thought Gaby would be shocked to be asked to dinner. The partnership ended when Gaby wanted to play more doubles; Steffi didn't, and the split was amiable. By the way, Ms. Sabatini speaks three foreign languages now; English, Italian and some French.
