Gaby hit 37 winners in that straight sets match and very few errors (apart from her 7 or 8 double faults) indeed that was one of her best matches ever.

Her passing shots are soo good. everytime martina came to the net Gaby had a solution, and those shots that just passed Martina by
this is one match i can watch over and over again for Gaby. And even in Martinas farewell, Gaby had a huge crowd backing her up.

Re: The Gabriela Sabatini Thread!

yeah, I did. Always cherich her victories over Steffi she owned Florida, no doubt there. Specially when there is a Sabatweeni involved.
Now her 90 USOPEN match was spectacular, but it wasn't her usual game. she won because she changed everything, which was great, but personally I lover her 1994 style, and shots more, even though her mental part wasn't helping her win, but when she won the Viriginia slims and sydney it was a glimpse of the real GREAT Gaby.

Re: The Gabriela Sabatini Thread!

But what I really hated was the commentating as always, I mean they did say how great Gaby was playing, but everytime she passed martina with a great shot, they would go like, oh martinas head is not there, she is thinking about her final match, she is not playing like the great martina and so and so, excuses excuses excuses.

Yeah, pretty funny i agree with that, Gaby was painting the lines hitting either strong passing shots or great lobs. Even on that last game Bud Collins said Martina "beaten by a FINE Sabatini"... Fine was too little to describe the way she was playing that day. It was great that in the end Martina congratulated Gaby saying she was "blown off the court by the hell of a tennis player"
