Ladies SP Report
Rochette, Little Wing
missed the opening of her program, but it seems she landed 3F2T as her first jumping pass, 3L, FSSp, lfS, coe, twS, 2A, LSp, sidesways, b2h, SlSt, goes well with the music, SpSt, clever construction without bielmans, CCoSp, camel, sit, layback // sit, Y
I cannot comment of the general impression, because I spent most of her program getting to my seat.
Marchei, Carmen, L'Arlesienne
3L2T, 2A, CCoSp, camel, sit, blS // ?, 3F fall, SpSt, including CoE hB, LSp, b2h, SlSt, FSSp, including blS.
Good start with a nice combo and 2A, but it went downhill from there. She tried to sell it though.
Zukowski, Le Vertigo, Rondeau
3T3T, 2L, CCoSp, cam, coe, lfS, layback // twS, Y, SlSt, 2A, FFSp, twS, lfS, SpSt, coe, bi, bo fan, LSp.
Laboured, poor extentiions and positions... weird technique on jumps, she is "long", not "height" jumper.
Bobilier, Concerto Pour Deux Voix
3S2T, FSSp, lfS, 3T, LSp, b2h, v. slow, CiSt, SpSt, coe hB, bi ugly position, bo Y, 2A, CCoSp, cam, coe, sit, Y // cam, sit, Y
Very slow and shaky. For some reason I liked her last year, but watching her now I cannot imagine why.
2A out of spiral, turn out, 3L u.r. fall, 1F, LSp, sideways, b2h, B, SpSt, coe, bo fan, bi hB, CCoSp, in the corner, camel, sit layback // sit, coe, Y, SlSt, nice edgework, but rather flow, FSSp, twS, coe, lfS
Heavy-metal ballad is rather strange choice for a skater who previously skated mostly "pretty" programs, it would have suited her if she had more attack, but aside from mistakes she looked rather lethargic.
3L3R, 3F, LSp, b2h, B, nearly fell out of B, 2A, SpSt, coe in variation of "classical" position, but with upper body rather low to the ice, bo fan, bi hB, rather poor position, lfS, twS, FSSp, SlSt, CCoSp, camel, lfS, layback // twS, Y
Somehow thsi program made better impression on Tv. Or may be she just skated better at Skate America. Now the power seemed somewhat laboured.
Didier, Somewhere in Time
3F u.r. fall, 1L, FSSp, clS, 2A, CCoSp, camel, sit, U // sit, Y, SpSt, coe B, LSp, SlSt, slooow.
Very slow throughout.
Radeva, Two Guitars
2A, 2F, she seemed to reconsider doing triple in the flight, 2T, LSp, SpSt, FCSp, interesting variation of turnout, SlSt, CCoSp, slow.
3L fall, 3FR, LSp, sideways, classical, b2h, SpSt, coe in classical position, bi hB, bo fan, very low, barely horizontal, 2A, FSSp, SlSt, slow, too busy, CCoSp, camel, sit, layback // sit, coe, Y
Unlike Ando she looked better in person than on Tv, neat and clean, but she lacks the flow of the music.
3T3T, 3R, LSp SpSt, coe hB, bi ugly, FSSp, forward one, SlSt, 2A, lean in the air, but done, CCoSp, back to forw.
Wheee, she got better tech than Meissner. Lost to her on PCS, of course. It's an old SP, but she still hasn't learn how to sell it.
Kim, Tango de Roxane
3F3T, very smooth, SpSt, I like the way she enters it withou long preparation, FSSp, twS, lfS, 3L, SlSt, LSp, excellent layback, b2h, B, 2A, from ina bauer, CCoSp, camel, lfS, twU // sit, Y
I am not sure I like her more than Ando, but she IS very good. Excellent character too.
