    Ladies LP report

    Leonova

    CiSt nice speed
    2A out of spreadeagle
    LSp to B

    She skated better yesterday, today it was a rush after elements, but at least she kept smiling and attacking all the elements and made a pleasant impression overall. She isn’t “it” yet, but she does have a potential.

    Apparently second 3S was discounted because it was 7th jumping pass and not an axel, and axel, I suppose, was also ignored because this way it was 8th jumping pass… Poor girl. It was a good skate, then a long brake because the panel consulted a lot and then a poor marks.

    36.52/38.39=74.91 to 116.47

    Gerboldt, Malaguena

    SpSt hB coe, Y, fan
    CCoSp back to forw
    CiSt
    LSp to B

    Good speed and flow, but no expression and too many mistakes, most of her jumps look underrotated, but I am not sure if it was just a look or if they were downgraded… well, judging from the marks they were

    24.56/41.26=-2=63.82 to 101.14

    Naidenova

    CoSp back

    CCoSp
    LSp to b2h

    Unexpectedly decent performance. Slow paced, almost lethargic and no lutz in sight, but compared to how she skated in the recent years, just staying vertical and rotating most of the jumps in an achievement to be proud off.

    Apparently, only 2 triples counted in the end… the audience booed on her marks…

    34.07/44.34=78.41 to 113.81

    Stepanova

    CoSp back
    SlSt good use of upperbody
    2F2T
    CCoSp

    Very weak, all those doubles aren’t even popped triples, they are just doubles and of rather low quality. Basic skating is poor as well. I really wonder who she ended up in this competition, because its unlikely that she passed even kms (Junior) requirements, skating like that. I know Nationals aren’t structured in accordance with the skill level, but they should have at least some criteria…

    24.92/32.69=57.61 to 90.26

    Lovely, soft skating. She is young, 13 I think and look very promising, perhaps the most promising of all the skaters here save Tertychnaya. She needs more power and stamina (and consistency of course), but she is a pleasure to watch

    31.74/43.42=75.06 to 118.02

    It would have helped a lot if she hadn’t spent almost entire program with her eyes glues to the ice and generally paid attention to lines. She is seasoned competitor, but I doubt she ever made it to Top10 at Nationals… Another testament to how weak the field is this year.

    30.78/35.26=66.04 to 108.22

    Tertychnaya

    She looked solid at warm up, but it did not transfer into the program. Good performance still. Smooth, with good speed, but she needs to sell it better. Some of those jumps might have been ur in addition to falls.

    31.82/43.60=-2=74.43 to 116.32

    Petushkova

    3R fall

    Rather poor, today even the jumps were not there and she doesn’t have much to offer except them.

    34.89/37.25=-2=70.14 to 114.78

    Strong start, but then she fell apart. I am not sure which jumps were toes and which were flips, but it doesn’t really matter, I guess…. Not with the way she skated…

    30.60/51.79=-1=81.39 to 129.83

    Not sure she deserved to win LP, but OTOH, I don’t think Naidenova deserved to win it either.

    Doronina

    She was slow to the point of being lethargic, but she got the job done… some triples are likely to be downgraded though, at least they did not really look clean for me.

    47.49/50.62=98.11 to 146.20

    Another slow skate, but not as good as Doronina’s… Wonder what the judges would do with her. I think I would have her behind Martynova, based on the strength of Martynova’s spins, spirals and overall skating, which was more inspired and better presented.

    32.30/51.82=-2=82.12 to 129.27

    Ievleva, Harem,

    Too bad… but in terms of choreography and overall presentation it was clearly the best so far.

    Well, at least she attacked the program today and tried to sell it. The audience booed on her marks.
