    Not really. Vaitsekhovskaya wrote in her blog

    No, they've said it in Sotchi in interviews (with me and others) and also before (the first time they mentioned it in an interview with me was in May 2012) that they would like to continue competing beyond Sotchi.

    I 'can't wait' to see the judges showering them with +3s and 10s, regardless of what they actually show on the ice.

    It totally makes sense for them to keep competing as, barring major disasters, they have it pretty much guaranteed to win every competition until they decide to retire.

    This V/T thread is redundant - go to this one instead with a MUCH more interesting interview, translated by TAHbKA: Ermolina's interview with Volosozhar/Trankov `Next 4 years will be interesting'
