She is such a strikingly beautiful woman (no surprise, I know), and having seen her in person at close range, I can honestly say pictures, while nice, don't do her justice.

Gaby looked gorgeous at the 1991 French Open. She still had that air of mystery around her, yet her great form that spring seemed to have given her the confidence she often lacked.

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)

Thanks for the photos, Veronika. Really nice to see Gaby & Mercedes together again. Made me think back to the photo of the two of them together as juniors from Gaby's autobiography.

Also good to see another favorite, Florencia Labat.

Mercedes looks quite trim... I remember reading somewhere that players used to make comments about her large eating habits!

I loved Labat's game, the forehand that she had a HUGE backswing with, and then loved to smack it down the line. I remember reading somewhere about her that she said all the press used to look for the next Sabatini from Argentina but every Argentine on the tour thought Gaby was a 'goddess' and that she was sure no one would ever be able to emulate her! She said the same about Vilas and that no male would ever have the same effect on Argentine tennis that he did!

Seriously, when I look at her pics I cannot understand how it is possible that Anna or Maria are said to be "the beaty queens of tennis". If I were a guy I'd prefer Gaby any day.

I absolutely agree.I miss those times when woman beauty was embraced instead of nowadays childish beauty

Yes, I prefer real women like Sabatini (or Graf, BTW) to Sharapova or Kournikova types, Ruppert ....

BTW-has anyone ever seen the big coffee table book full of Sabatini pictures? At $50 US it cost a small fortune!

Beside the fact that I loved the game, Gabriela Sabatini was the reason I started watching tennis and obsessing over it!!! Capriati is my all time fav but, you'll always love your first!!! I miss Sabatini !!! She reminds me of my carefree college days!!!
