    Ladies

    ...haven't heard any news. Have any of the Japanese ladies retired? (Akiko? Fumie? Yukari?)

    What about Júlia Sebestyén? Kiira Korpi? Anastasia Gimazetdinova? Sarah Meier? Tugba Karademir?

    Men

    Stephane Lambiel
    Evgeny Plushenko (due to skating in an event not sanctioned by the ISU)
    Vaughn Chipeur
    ...not sure about Stefan Lindemann ?
    Ryan Bradley has talked about retirement, but I think he's waiting to see if a foot injury will heal properly...

    ...not sure if we'll see Lysacek or Weir back in the competitive ranks again...

    Pairs

    Shen and Zhao
    Volosozhar and Morozov (she's skating with new partner, right...he's retired?)
    Langlois and Hay (he's searching for new partner?)
    James and Bonheur (one or both looking for new partners?)
    Duhamel and Buntin (she's skating with Eric Radford now)

    What about Mukhortova and Trankov?

    Dance

    Domnina and Shabalin (?)
    Belbin and Agosto
    Delobel and Schoenfelder
    Khoklova and Novitski (she's skating with Fedor Andreev)

    I'm pretty sure Navarro and Bommentre have retired.

    ...unsure about the Zaretskys and Hoffman/Zavozin...
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Not retired. Planning to skate in next Olympics, like Laura Lepistö, too.

    One Finnish lady has retired: Susanna Pöykiö.

    Only Yukari Nakano has retired. Both Akiko Suzuki and Fumie Suguri are scheduled to be on the Grand Prix this fall. Suzuki will start her international season at Finlandia Trophy.

    What about Júlia Sebestyén? Kiira Korpi? Anastasia Gimazetdinova? Sarah Meier? Tugba Karademir?
    Sebestyén and Karademir have both retired, along with Bebe Liang of the USA. Korpi and Meier will be on the Grand Prix. Not sure about "Gizmo's" status.

    Men
    ...not sure about Stefan Lindemann ?
    Lindemann has retired and is coaching now.

    Pairs
    Volosozhar and Morozov (she's skating with new partner, right...he's retired?)

    What about Mukhortova and Trankov?
    You haven't been keeping up here at FSU, PeterG!
    Volosozhar is now skating with Maxim Trankov for Russia (yes, S. Morozov has retired) while Maria Mukhortova is skating with Jerome Blanchard (formerly of France) for Russia.

    Langlois and Hay (he's searching for new partner?)
    James and Bonheur (one or both looking for new partners?)
    I believe Cody Hay is still looking for a partner. Langlois has retired and she will be on CBC's "Battle of the Blades" this fall.

    Vanessa James was RUMORED to be skating with Maximin Coia (they're still assigned to TEB on the ISU site as of today) but it's UNCONFIRMED whether or not they are still together. Adeline Canac is skating with Yannick Bonheur, last I heard.

    Dance
    ...unsure about the Zaretskys and Hoffman/Zavozin...
    Zaretskys have retired and Hoffman/Zavozin are continuing.

    Bonheur has teamed up with Coia.
    Trankov is with Volosozhar.
    Mukhortova is with Blanchard.

    Dance:

    Zaretskys and Bonmetre/Navarro have retired.

    It took me about three months to find out what was up with Rockne Brubaker. I will read one page (40 posts) of a thread, but I will not spend three hours reading 25 pages of posts to find out one answer!

    Yes, she withdrew from Europeans after the SP and then retired.

    Eh, some must have since they came out of retirement when the opportunity presented itself.
