The Wealth of Gabriela Sabatini

How rich is Gabriela Sabatini? As of late-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $8 million earned largely through success in her tennis endeavors, and by later foraying into business. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Gabriela is of Argentinian descent, and grew up in Buenos Aires with an elder brother – her father worked as an executive for the company General Motors. She also has Italian citizenship due to her great-grandfather who was originally from the country before immigrating to Argentina.

At a young age, she developed her talents in tennis and showed a lot of potential to reach professional levels. However, her shyness was a problem, and apparently she often deliberately lost matches during semifinals of tournaments to avoid taking the limelight, as she wouldn’t know what to say if she was asked to give a speech.

During her junior years she gained a lot of attention, winning her first tournament at eight years of age. In 1983, she became the youngest player to win the Orange Bowl held in Miami, Florida as she was only 13 at the time. She would continue her streak, winning six major international junior titles, becoming the top ranked junior in the span of a year. In 1985 at the age of 15, she became one of the youngest players to reach the semifinals of the French Open Grand Slam event; she would later win her first top level singles title in Tokyo.

Rise to Fame

In 1988, Sabatiini reached her first Grand Slam single final at the US Open where she would face Steffi Graf who was set on winning a fourth Grand Slam singles title. She lost but was still selected to represent Argentina during the 1988 Summer Olympics, where she would win the silver medal once again to Graf, who was bidding for a “Golden Slam”, wanting to take the Olympic Games plus all four major Grand Slams within a year.

The two would later team up and win the Wimbledon doubles title during that year, and she would win the year end WTA Tour Championship. In 1990, she reached her second, US Grand Slam singles final, facing Graf once more. She won this time around, actually her only Grand Slam women’s singles title; she was credited for being more aggressive in the match. In 1991, she won five tournaments during the first half of the year and reached the Grand Slam final at Wimbledon and was set to become top in the world but was narrowly defeated by Graf.

The next year, she failed in her various bids once more, although reaching the semifinals or finals at the tournaments she competed in.

Latter Career and Retirement

In 1993, Gabriela continued her bid deep into various Grand Slam events, reaching the quarterfinals of Wimbledon and the US Open. The following year, she won five tournaments, but was now on a 29 month streak without a title win. She then lost against Arantxa Sanchez Vicario at the Bausch & Lomb Championships where both were trying to end their losing streaks. She finally broke her streak against Lindsay Davenport in the 1994 WTA Tour Championships.

In 1995, she won the last singles title of her career in the Sydney tournament, but was defeated early in all of her bids at Grand Slam tournaments, losing to Steffi Graf once more during the French Open – she had lost to Graf in eight consecutive matches at this point. Her last professional singles match was against Jennifer Capriati during the first round of the European Indoors. Her highest ranking during her career was world number three in 1989. Following her retirement, she ventured into businesses, creating her own line of perfumes.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, very few details have been revealed about Sabatini’s romantic relationships, as she prefers to keep this aspect of hers away from the spotlight. Her public accounts and appearances show no indication of her marrying or starting a family. It is not known if she has a current boyfriend and this has led to a lot of speculation that she may be lesbian, though it has never been confirmed. Despite all of her struggles, she was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2006, having won 41 career singles titles with an overall record of 884-285.

She has homes in several locations around the world, including in Buenos Aires, Boca Raton in Florida, and in Pfaffikon, Switzerland. Similar to numerous retired professional tennis players, she is active online through accounts on social media, particularly on Instagram on which she has over 100,000 followers, using the platform to show some of her recent endeavors which include time out with friends, travelling around the world, and engaged in various charitable efforts – she has been active with organizations helping the poor and children since her retirement. She also continues to be an active voice within the professional tennis community.
