I'm not one for "comebacks" as I think they generally do not work however, given the state of the US ladies now, I'm not all that "against" this idea. IF Cohen is really committed to skating for herself and not for others, that change in mindset and theoretically, the maturity that comes with it, just may be what she needs to finally achieve all that she wanted too.
I really like Alyssa and frankly, I thinks her skating is worthy of a world/olympic medal provided she can stand up but, part of winning those events is consistency and she just doesn't have it. I wish she did.
I like Ashley like I liked Sarah. She's the girl next door and that's appealing. I also like that she has a figure (i.e she's not a baby ballerina) and looks more like a women - esp. since this is "ladies" figure skating. But she too has been somewhat inconsistent. However, that comeback at nationals was something.
Of the other baby ballerina's Rachel is the only one who shows much consistency but she has so much to improve upon. I do however, like her costumes for whatever that's worth.
Can Cohen do it, who knows. It's an uphill battle but it has always seemed to me that her issues were psychological. If she has indeed matured, found a joy in skating and skates for herself and not for others, she might make it. We'll see though.
