Gabriela Sabatini is set to retire Thursday, ending a career in which she was once one of the biggest stars in women's tennis, but has been unable to win a tournament in nearly two years.

The announcement is to come at Madison Square Garden in New York, where Sabatini captured the 1994 Virginia Slims Championships, her last victory in an important event.

A source close to Sabatini said Tuesday the retirement will take effect immediately, and there are no plans for the 26-year-old Argentine to play in selected tournaments or make a farewell tour.
