Yu-na Kim was everything I expected. Light and graceful. I also thought Kimmie Meissner is improving by leaps and bounds. Mistakes on the jumps cost her, but her skating seemed more secure and artful than last year.
Miki Ando racked up the points, and she might win the World Championship this year -- especially if she gets her quad Salchow together. But to me there is still something disjointed about her performances. Kim's skating, in contrast has a seamless quality to it that is very appealing.
