    I think skating fans should present both Joubert and Asada with a spa trip or something like that. Those two are killing themselves with narrow-minded pressure in my opinion.

But seriously, the fact that Kim can hit 3/3s so consistently is frankly amazing, and probably scares the crap out of her competitors.
    It's strange now, how some fans view 3/3s as not a risk considering it's difficult for some ladies to execute a great 3/3. It seems like yesterday that 3/3s were considered to be a risk.

    True, she should have learned from worlds and that WTT gave her a chance to believe she can do it. However, it may take this competition to finally nail it in the coffin for her.

    It's understandable that Mao wants a challenge to execute 3 3As this season. She should reconsider her strategy and seek a new challenge. For example, performing both clean SP and FS with 1 3A and 3/3s instead.

    Tatiana and Mao should know that they are getting worse and worse.
    Look at Yuna!!! She does not make any mistakes!
    Yuna knows better the rule and she is practicing better.
    I don't think it's so much about practicing. The difference here is that Kim has sounder jumping technique than Asada has...And that sound jumping technique is paying dividends after puberty.

    There is nothing to be shocked about her scores. Mao is definitely going downhill. I missed her first half of the program due to internet issue, but I realized from her face after the program that she screwed up her 3A and maybe something else. I am excited to see her LP with 3A whose success rate this season is 25%. Show me a miracle, Mao!

    For those rivalry-lovers, I guess the interesting rivalry would be between Joannie and Miki, not between Yu-Na and Mao at the Grand Prix Final.

    Mao's Overestimated Score in WTT was Definitely false alarm for her team.

    I'm extremely happy for the top 5, especially Julia, great to see her back and be on the top (although only with a tiny margin)!
    Alena has good chance to make the podium, nice to see Team Russia finally got a leading lady now.
    Mao typically has stronger LP than SP, and the distance between the top 6 is nothing, she can easily make a comeback as long as she doesn't have a complete meltdown tomorrow. But, this is a wake-up call for her and Team Tarasova. Her jumps are somehow going downhill quickly after the summer training. Maybe she should put more attention on her 3-3 rather than 3A.

    I am sure the Japanese Federation would be glad to cover Tat's expenses if they could get her to take a 6 month spa vacation - preferrably starting this Sunday

    I love all figure skaters and love also Mao, but compare to Yuna, Miki, Joannie and Carolina, she doesn't seems to be able to think anything by herself. I mean to show herself better. She seems to be following what Tatiana says.

    I am female and I am sort of in Fashion industry, so I do not understand the choice for dresses, music, make up etc.
    Even old ladies here wouldn't chose these dresses!!!
    Make up, uffa please go to Sephora or some shops which sells cosmetics and ask someone there how to put make up.
    Eveything of Mao this season so far is disappointing.
    Seriously, makeup and new dresses will do nothing if Mao doesn't deliver clean performances.

    Can't agree with you anymore. I think Japanese Fed's attempt to cheer up their skaters at their home ground turned out to be worse consequences.

    But seriously, something is awfully wrong with Asada. And Joubert for that matter. I have the feeling that Asada is buried under expectations, pressure etc. She needs to get out, have some fun.

    Take heart, Mao. The season is FAR from over!!

    ok, lets ressume:

    TAT's achievements:

    Mao's 3A is inconsistent again, Mao can't do 3-3's anymore, Mao's 2L in combinations gets downgraded, Mao's 3L gets downgraded, 3Lz is not existent anymore, Mao's 3F gets downgraded.... But hey: she can do a 3T now...

    so, i suggest:

    SP
    3T-2T
    2Lz ( but with the right edge)
    2A

    FS
    3T-2T
    2F-1L-1L
    2Lz
    2 or 3L
    2A
    2A
    2A-tano2L
