Gabriela Sabatini is best known for her successes at the US Open in 1990, a Wimbledon doubles victory at Wimbledon in 1988 and a silver medal at the 1988 Olympics. Although her success on the court was significant, she feel that the sport of tennis in her homeland of Argentina has been significantly underfunded and that with less children taking up the sport, she ahs doubts over the continued strength of Argentinean tennis.
Since she retired in 1996, Sabatini has quietly financed a programme for young players, women’s tennis tournaments and free tennis clinics for young children out of her own pocket, the IOC said. Sabatini, who was ranked world number three, said she was “giving back to sport something of the many things that sport gave to me”. She hope that this foundation will enable young children who wish to take up the support be able to reach the highs she once did as a professional and former female world number one. With two gram slam victories and two Women’s tennis association championships victories as well as scoring an incredible ten wins against every reigning number one player she faced in her career, the now 42 year old will forever be considered a tennis legend
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday awarded former Argentine tennis star Gabriela Sabatini its 2006 “women in sport” prize for her work to promote tennis in Argentina. The IOC highlighted how her dedication to the sport of tennis in her home country should be applauded as she has gone “above and beyond the expectations of a sporting role model.” Although her legacy in the sport may already be established, her legacy may also include the success of Argentinean tennis for many years to come.
Former tennis superstar Gabriela Sabatini is still in news. Nearly after three decades she appeared onto the scene and make all her fans feel proud. Her Latin looks and astounding charm were on full display when she walked up to receive her official hall of fame ring at the Copra Claro tennis tournament in Buenos Aires on Friday.
She is referred to as Pearl of Pampas and the best part is that she is still exquisite as before. We last saw her at the 1985 French Open semi final. In that tournament, argentine lost the match but still earned a lot of followers of all generation. That was really an astounding match to watch.
From that time till now, she has won whole lots of trophy, lifted the US grand slam, won Olympic silver and also graced several magazine cover. She was the brand ambassador of several advertising companies. Men loved her; women envied her because of her popularity and rivals fussed over her incredible topspin. She was the tennis superstar of that time and all the credit for this goes to her hard work and little bit to her luck!
She was popular as Gaby in the tennis world and was grace personified because of her influential ground strokes. Her rivalry with Steffi Graf became widely popular at that time. But sources says that she get along well with Graf. Both of them share a good rapport outside the field.
In 1996, Sabatini retired from tennis and that was really a bad moment for all her fans. When she retired from the game she hit the perfect length on the business court with her perfume line. She has also been popular in several charitable organizations that include UNICEF.
