Gaby dated a WTA physiotherapist around the time of her retirement.
I also read that part of the reason she retired was that the media was publising that she was gay.
I have some articles in in Spanish."La Semana" newspaper November 24th 1996: "Pero Gabriela tiene razones de peso para entonar el adi�s tan pronto. Descubrir que algunos me dios publicaban secretos intimos no ha sentado bien a su entorno y ella no ha sabido controlar la situaci�n. Gaby ha renunciado al deporte y a la fama para vivir m�s tranquila con su amiga, una fisioterapeuta de la WTA (Asociaci�n de Mujeres Te nistas).
Men loved her, women envied her and rivals fretted over her incredible topspin.
In the age of power play, 'Gaby' was grace personified, as she would waltz down the court and smother her opponents with powerful groundstrokes.
She's a subdued lady, a homebody, jetting across the world wasn't something she did until she met Diego.'The exclusive retreat where she died is one of Cape Town's premier hotels and its website states: 'Set on four acres of lush green nature reserve, with a mountain meditation pool, thickets of trees, waterfalls and streams, it is a peaceful paradise, where meditative moments are waiting to be had.
