    Oh Well done Carolina! Finally
    I expect her be 1st!
    61.12. Oh no, into 3rd place, I wonder why?
    ITA. My favorite program today. Seeing her huge smile at the end of her program was priceless. I got a kick out of the banter between Caro and Frank in the K&C. They seem to really hit it off.

    It wasn't a great skate by Kostner, but it was a solid one, and if ever there was a skater who really needed a clean skate, it was her. I hope this will give Caro some confidence going into the LP .

    Still strange seeing her with someone other than Huth in the K&C, but looks like it was the right call. I wish she'd do something about the dress, it looks too low cut. The color is gorgeous on her, though.

    I must disappoint you, but Oksana's sequence is not even close in terms of diffuculty and execution. But also demands for step sequences were different in 1994.

    Are they ever closer. Top 3 are a virtual tie.

    Great competition!!!

    Gotta be impressed with Koster and Nagasu.

    Good job Mirai and Carolina! Love Akiko too.
    Oh Rochette ... what happened ):

    Great competition today, FS tomorrow should be exciting! I hope Rochette bounces back though, her S&D FS is lovely.

    What a topsy-turvy season it has been this year! Nothing it seems is for certain.

    ITA. I remembered why I liked her so much a couple years ago. I hope this wasn't a one-off and hopefully she can keep it up!

    Yikes for Joannie. Her PB is the highest of all the ladies here though. If she could skate lights out tomorrow, I think she could still pull off the win. She's only 10 pts back. She is at a disadvantage because she's not in the final flight (who saw that coming?!). I guess we'll see!

    It will be interesting to see Mirai's PCS tomorrow. Though the program is devoid is very Flat(like flatt's program), she will get quantum jump in her pcs for being in lead.

    Joannie just needs to focus on her long program. I suspect she will move up but she is 10 points behind the first place finisher. Ouch

    I don't know why yet but I was not crazy about Rachael's program. Maybe it will grow on me. She had on a beautiful dress, nice color on her.

    gosh what a disappointment. Highest score of 62 for SP? I thought Joannie was really going to blow the field away. I am glad Carolina dumbed down her program to get a clean skate. she's so lucky she is in third as she only did a triple toe.

    Should be noted Mirai got by far the biggest applause from audience. I agree with her in 1st... she's gangly and juniorish still, of course has things to work on, but that performance had a certain charm. Or else i was just caught by surprise with low expectations, having only seen her once before.

    Korpi was well balanced.

    Caro competent job today, and has high skills, but today's performance not HER best.

    Akiko is nice, overall program will get better. Could work on her spins.

    I'd easily switch Flatt and Fumie's scores (just on general impression.. i of course don't know what the protocols say).

    Rochette!!! I do like the program though, this may well turn into her absolute best SP.

    10 points, I would call that 10 points.

    If the judges call Nagasu tomorrow on the underrotations, that clearly were there today - I predict 1. Flatt, 2./3. Suzuki / Rochette, perhaps the other way around.
