Re: The Gabriela Sabatini Thread!
I've had the opportunity to have met many women players over the past 20 years. Gabriela Sabatini is far and away the nicest, most down to earth person I had the pleasure to meet. No attitude- she just stood there on an outside practice court at the U.S. Open, and spoke to the 3 or 4 people who had gathered like they were neighbors. Also, unlike every other player of her era, I've never heard anybody in the commentary booth ever have a bad word to say about her. Even the walking ego herself (#2 behind BJK who takes the ego cake), Martina Navratilova, had to admit "she's a really nice girl".
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
