    Rachael should really work on her spins, especially given how so many of the other US ladies (Alissa, Caroline, Mirai, etc) are such good spinners.

    Great job for Flatt, except the combo...I enjoyed that. She skated well to the music.

    I have to admit the choreography and music suit Flattt well. She fell on a 3+3, i suspected it's ur.

    Both jumps looked URed. I hate her wild swing when doing 3flip/3lutz. She should get edge calls for both jumps.

    She's not a bad commentator, she just needs to talk a little less.

    The fall was unfortunate but still good performance from Flatt

    I kinda understand your point, but it's a nickname that just kinda stuck, the way nicknames do... came mostly from European fans actually, meant in an affectionate way really, and has been used for *years* on this board, really has nothing to do with her age, except for the "coincidence" that everyone does get older.

    Rachael looked off center on her 3T when she was in the air.

    And to leave the X out of especially. She said it twice.

    Flatt's expression needs work, but she's clearly working on it. I really enjoyed that skate, and she did a good job of overcoming that mistake. Of all the American ladies, she does seem to have her head screwed on tightest.

    I'll admit that Flatt improved the presentation, but this girl's posture is just bad...
    And she is definetively in the two flips per short program group...

    What I expect from Yuna:
    5Lz-4T - huge lutz!
    9870978F - ok
    LSp7
    SpSq23 - 19 bonus levels for lasers shooting out of her eyes
    12A - could be better.
    SlSt987 - might be a deduction for killing a judge with her lasers

    I liked Rachael MUCH better this time around. She's clearly been working on things since her last GP. She was much more animated and engaging than she has been.
