After Barbat's father attacked her in Germany last year she only played a tournament Rotterdam.

Barbat's father accused her for hitting him and he was only defending himself, which at first she could laugh about because it was a crazy accusation. But then she was really dissapointed that the ITF send her a letter they were going to investigate that. The Dutch Tennis Federation helped and supported her.

I think maybe the incident hurt her emotionally and took away the fun and her desire to play tennis again.
But as I can't find any updates, I'm just guessing.

Hopefully in the summer when there are tournaments in the Netherlands, she will enter those and enjoys being on the court again. Because it would be a sad way for her to end her career like that
