    Who's In the Ladies Final

    Only 1, Miki Ando is a definite.

    The next four completed skaters are Leonova and Wagner. Both are at 24 points. and Asada and Nakano at 20 each. Will that be enough for these four. They will not skate again.

    High Scores on one GP are:

    YuNa Kim with 15 - next to skate: SA.
    Akiko Suzuki with 15 - next to skate: SC
    Joannie Rochette with 11 - next to skate:SC

    With 9 points, the following will need at least Silver.

    Flatt at SA. Sasha could spoil this.
    Czisny at SC
    Zhang at SC

    That's eleven skaters. Only six qualify.

    It looks like the magic number will be 24 this year. Czisny or Zhang would have to win Skate Cabada to bump Wagner.

    From where we now stand, Rachael, Alissa and Caroline all have a 4th place finish. So if any of them win, that would push them ahead of the girls with a silver and a bronze. Or mathamatically ( 4 + 1 ) > ( 3 + 2 ) .

    I would say of the three of them, Caroline has the best chance.

    That's what I am thinking too.

    This whole business of doing better in one event makes the whole situation complicated though. With Sasha out, it looks as though SA will be yu na and rachael for gold and silver . SC is a mixed bag though as Caroline, Alissa, and Mirai go head to head with each other against Akiko, Rochette, and Lepisto. All the SC ladies are pretty equally matched, clearly the judges favor some over others, but though Joannie is expected to win, it is very plausible that Mirai, Caroline, or Alissa could win the event with a good skate . Of the three Americans Mirai is probably our best hope at SC, as she did win the SP in China and the judges seem to be extremely harsh on Caroline :( and even if Alissa skates well technically she isn't as strong as a lot of the other competitors. Let's just hope Mirai doesn't get the downgrades for under rotating her jumps

    Mmm chances of Czisny or Zhang are not too good. They both have to compete with Suzuki and Rochett, which will be a lock for 1-2 for sure. I can see Zhang getting the bronze, but there is also Laura Lepisto. What she lacks in TES, she more than make up in PCS part. So If Lepisto land 4 clean triple, she will edge out for sure.
