She dropped out of the rankings when she had no longer played three tournaments in 52 weeks. That's not the same as announcing her retirement, which she has not done yet AFAIK.

My Eternal Fanship: 1. Monica Seles; 2. Мария Шарапова (‘Maria Sharapova’); 3. Daniela Hantuchová; 4. Jelena Dokić; 5. Iva Majoli; 6. Karina Habšudová; 7. Вера Звонарёва (‘Vera Zvonarëva’); 8. Nicole Vaidišová; 9. Анна Чакветадзе (‘Anna Chakvetadze’); 10. Lucie Šafářová; 11. Ирода Туляганова (‘Iroda Tulyaganova’); 12. Magdaléna Rybáriková; 13. Sabine Lisicki

Poor Iroda. She was always a player I kept my eye out for and hoped she could make it back!

Re: Where is Iroda Tulyaganova?

taken form her official fan site

As no one had heard about Iroda for such a long time, I decided to ask an Uzbek aquaintance about her. On 23.10.08, this person sent an unofficial report that Iroda had retired. The next day, Iroda signed her quest book with the following:
  • "Hello every one!!!!!! Is Is Iroda thank u very much for not forgeting about me!!! im not playing at the moment becouse of my lower back and left wrist injury, i dont know how long the recover is going to be and i don't know if i will have power to come back"

There's two cheering threads. That one, and a more active one in RR:
http://www.tennisforum.com/33-asia/136307-iroda-tulyaganova-cheering-thread-post16067527.html

Nope, she’s not officially retired, but I don’t think Iroda stands by ceremony much, so there may well never be a definitive statement. She’s not competed for over a year, because of those injuries, but she has started actively coaching at a tennis school she opened recently: Iroda opens Uzbek Tennis School

So although she doesn’t like talking about her recovery progress much (if at all), she does appear to be heading in the right direction. So everything crossed.
