Gaby was mentally not strong and still Steffi lost 4 close matches in a row and she also lost 8:6 in a grand slam to Novotna in 91 and in all matches she had big chances, lucky in the most important match in wimbledon she got it together again well she still choked but Sabatini did even bigger.
I never saw this match but I read about and it might have had big influence on Sabatini`s mental state for the rest of her career. In april 86 when she was 15 she played Steffi(16 then) in the Indianpolis final and she lead 6:2 5:2 and I think also 40:15 in the next game and she went on to lose the match 2:6 7:6 6:4.
