Safina not retiring from tennis

Not long ago, Marat Safin announced to the world that his sister, Dinara Safina, was going to retire soon because of her chronic back problems; Safina did not confirm this. On October 6, Safin announced that his sister was definitely about to retire. Not many hours later, Safina said that she had not made a decision. She has now released this statement:

"Hey everybody. I just want to inform you that I AM NOT retiring at this time. I will continue to use therapy to try to treat my back injury and hope to return to competition eventually."

I don't know what's going on with Safin's repeated announcements of his sister's alleged retirement, but for now, Safina is on the tour and still trying to get well.
