Where are they now: Gabriela Sabatini, Yannick Noah
August 2, 2012 Armand Colson Hot Articles, No comments


Gabriela Sabatini, from Argentina, retired from competitive tennis in 1996. Her highest world ranking was number three in February 1989. She was the number one junior player in the world in 1984, and was one of the top professional female players on tour in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In her career she won a total of 10 matches over reigning number one players she faced. Gabriela is a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Since retiring from competitive tennis she has become a very successful business woman and contributes, financially and otherwise, to a number of charitable organizations, including but not limited to: UNICEF, Special Olympics, and the Steffi Graf Foundation.

Her involvement with the Steffi Graf Foundation is built on a long lasting friendship with one of her most fierce competitors in singles and team mate in doubles during her tennis career. The Steffi Graf Foundation focuses on supporting and initiating projects that provide assistance to children and families who have become victims of war, persecution and violence.

In her business ventures she is an investor in real estate in Buenos Aires. She is also an investor with a group building and managing a club for tennis, golf and polo in Buenos Aires, and she finances a program for women’s tennis tournaments, free tennis clinics for young children, and coaching for young payers in Argentina. For her efforts in supporting and promoting tennis in her home country, she was awarded the International Olympic Committee 2006 “Women in Sport” award. Her most successful business venture is a perfume line bearing her name which includes more than 15 scents.

Yannick Noah, from France, retired from competitive tennis in 1996. His highest  world ranking was number three in July 1988.
In 1983 he became the first Frenchman in 37 years to win the French Open. He was a member of the French Davis Cup team (1978-1985, 1088-1990). He was captain of the French Davis Cup team in 1991 and 1996 when France won the title, and was captain of the French Fed Cup team in 1997 when France won the title. Yannick is a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

Since retiring from competitive tennis, he has embarked on a music career as a singer, and has been actively involved in charities. He has released 8 albums including; Black or What, Urban Tribu, Zam Zam, Frontieres, and Charango which sold over 1.1 million copies.

In 1996, he founded and serves as president of, Fete le Mur, a tennis charity for underprivileged children. In 1998 he co-founded, with his mother, Enfants de la Terre, a charity for underprivileged children.

Yannick has 5 children, and his oldest, Joakim, plays professional basketball for the Chicago Bulls of the NBA, and the French National team in Olympic and World Championships.

Gabriela Sabatini deliberately lost tennis matches to avoid reporters!

The winner of the 1990 US Open, Gabriela Sabatini was widely regarded as one of the most talented and charismatic players of the 1980s and 1990s.

NDTVSports

Former tennis star Gabriela Sabatini says she deliberately lost matches in her youth to avoid interacting with Press reporters. In comments published on Friday, the former world No. 3 Argentine said: "When I was younger and thought that I had to talk after winning a tournament, I often lost in the semifinals so I did not have to. It was that bad!" Sabatini told the Argentine newspaper La Nacion.

"I was very introverted. I had some issues at school because I was very inward-looking," she said. Now 43, Sabatini, who has a range of perfumes named after her, said her shyness was a major problem. "I got very nervous at that point. But at the same time I was very competitive and I got frustrated when I did not win," she said. "I might lose the first set, when I was little, and I gave up on the match just because I was so angry that I could not bear having lost the first set."

The winner of the 1990 US Open was widely regarded as one of the most talented and sexiest players of the 1980s and 1990s. Sabatini's rivalry with Steffi Graf made tennis headlines but the Argentine never became the world No. 1. "I think my fame and my public profile had something to do with the fact that I did not become world number one. To be so famous would also have been a problem if I had been world number one," Sabatini said.

"I loved playing tennis. I loved it since the first day I grabbed a racket, I was crazy about it. One never knows what comes behind that or with that. I loved to play, I was competitive, I wanted to win, that was all I knew. In the first few years tennis is a game. Later, it becomes a job," Sabatini said.

Sabatini, who retired in 1996, lives in Buenos Aires and often travels to Europe and the United States to promote her line of perfumes and other businesses.
