Question When Do Retired Players Get Erased from Rankings?

Just curious if Maggie, Silvia etc. will continue to be in the WTA ranking until the end of this year or whether they will be taken off after they have played their last match.

They can be taken off the rankings on their own request (for example, Graf), or they just continue to sink lower and lower until they have less than 3 tournaments on their total.

as joanna said
the personal request demands a formal letter so it can take one more week sometimes till it gets there and the wta aprove it.
generally speaking - players just stop playing. the vast majority of the tour don't even get mentioned.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
