I know that Javier Fernandez has suggested that he will likely be retiring after this coming season, but do you know if any other figure skaters (male or female) have mentioned similar intentions?
patrick chan and duhamel/radford are almost definitely retiring. can’t remember any other specific declarations off the top of my head, but i wouldn’t be surprised if many other older skaters retire: virtue/moir, cappellini/lanotte, bobrova/soloviev? weaver/poje? kostner? mura? rippon? ten? savchenko/massot? very likely kavaguti/smirnov. wagner has said she wants to continue. some younger skaters who have trouble reaching the top in deep fields may retire as well.
