CareerEdit

Gabba, a right-handed player, was born in the northwest Italian town of Casale Monferrato.[1] Her junior career included a win over Victoria Azarenka, at a tournament in Santa Croce, Italy.[2]

All of her main-draw appearances on the WTA Tour were in doubles, most notably at Palermo in 2006, where she and Alice Canepa made it through to the final. The pair, who were featuring in the draw as qualifiers, were beaten in the final by Janette Husárová and Michaëlla Krajicek.[3] Her regular doubles partner on the WTA Tour was Sara Errani. As a singles player, she had wins over both Barbora Strýcová and Kirsten Flipkens at the $75,000 Ortisei tournament in 2007. Later in the year she defeated Alize Cornet en route to the quarterfinals of the $100,000 Tiro A Volo ITF event, after which she broke into the world's top 200.

She won a total of eight doubles titles on the ITF circuit.
