Grand Prix 2009 Entries are up!
Yay I am going to SA
Also, I think TEB will be the best one among the series..
Thanks. I posted it in the other GP thread as well. I was going to start a new thread but you beat me to the punch.
IF everyone shows up, yikes for TEB. That's easily the toughest field of all of them. I mean, YuNa, Mao, Nakano, Zhang - as well as Cohen and Kostner. Sort of like a mini-worlds if one thinks about it.
Meissner gets Russia and Japan. Both fields have top competitors but other than that shouldn't be too tough.
Cohen faces the reigning World Champ at both of her GP events. If she expects to be competitive, no better way to test yourself than to face the cream of the current crop.
I noticed Gilles and Bereswill have GP events. Guess they moved up from Juniors.
Czisny already has two GPs so looks like she's not going to get the TBD spot at SA.

By the way, I was surprised that Japan didn't call Mao.
Thanks for the link, EHDTKQORL123. Can you explain more about "...that Japan didn't call Mao". What's the news?
leave no stone unturned
wow TEB women and NHK men rock...
I will go to TEB for sure!
Hmm many 'retired' got two invitations as I see..Cohen, Shen and Zhao, who else?
They sent Chan to Russia and Jouby overseas...
Plushy name on the board.. dont wake me up...
Well, AFAIK Japanese federation has been supporting Mao for Olympics so they always invited her to NHK, but this time they didn't even though they could..

Believing in Mirai
I hope and pray that NONE of the skaters hurt themselves. No injuries, everyone in top form. That's my wish.
