Schett has won five singles and four doubles titles on the WTA Tour during her career. After retiring, she became a television commentator and analyst for major tennis tournaments' German and Austrian broadcasts.

Barbara Schett Married Life With Joshua Eagle
Barbara Schett and Joshua Eagle tied the wedding knot on 6 July 2007. The two dated for more than six years before getting married.
They both retired from their professional lives to focus more on their personal lives a few years ago. Barbara announced her retirement in 2005, while Joshua retired in 2004 after the Australian Open.
But even now, they continue to give back to the sport they love by giving talks and coaching young players.
As per the picture shared by the 46-year-old former tennis pro in January last year, it appears that Barbara was already in a relationship with the Aussie star Joshua from the early 2000s.
She penned the post with the caption which says "21 years ago" and a love emoji, which only means they were dating at that time. Both pros participated in the Australian Open that year.
The image shows that Barbar and Joshua both won and posed with the trophy.
Besides, there are only a few photographs of the couple on social media. Joshua is barely on social media, while Barbara has a handful of posts with him. Most of her uploads are about her profession and tennis related.
