    Since Ladies' PCS are factored by 0.8 in the SP as opposed to 1.0 for the Men's PCS, she actually would be in the lead among the Men too, if I'm not mistaken.

    Don't tell that to Evan Lysacek.

    I highly doubt Yuna's feelings would be hurt if not everyone like her but geez, her fanbots need to be less sensitive. It's part of life. Not everyone is going to like your fandom and it's okay. The world is not going to end ... yet.

    You gotta take her spiral seq out and count her step seq twice, because men do two steps instead of one spiral and one step. Her score might be higher.

    Go to any regional skating competition and you will see at least one skater skating to Classical Gas. It's like the Carmen of the lower ranks.

    Great music! I can actually imagine Kozuka and Abbott skating to it.

    Well protocols aren't out for SA, but at TEB she got 4.80 for her spiral seq and 4.10 for her step sequence, so that's -.70 difference in her score which would still put her in 3rd for the men.

    But I am sorry to see that Alex did not do as well, I was hoping that she was going to really present her case to be considered a serious contender for the olympic team. At this rate it is going to be Rachel and or either Carolina Zhang or Miri Nagasu.
    Alexe does not look ready for primetime to me at all. In another year or two maybe.
    Rachael totally unimpressive to me when compared to the top skaters. Mirai definitely has it over Rachael if she can get her ur's fixed up.

    I apologize if you're not talking about Yeon-A, but if you are, I think you need to go back and think about it again.

    Sorry I'm being harsh, but that comment kind of rubbed me the wrong way.
    I think this comment says it all...

    I didn't think about that.

    i feel sorry for yu-na; at first she only had to worry about beating mao; Now her biggest rival is her WR world record and after breaking it three times in a row everyone is watching her; i was so nervous and i could feel her tension and nervousness; like she now feels the pressure to break everytime; its huge; no one skates clean everytime. She is gonna be a mess at the gp final . I hope not ; like my sassy yuna

    I don't know if this is technically true, but aren't GOE's for the ladies done relative to other ladies, too, and not necessarily compared to guys?

    It's unlikely, yes. But given how wide open the field is, and how easily the door can be opened by a mistake from the front-runner, I'd never say never.

    Even with three spots her chances would be slim at best. Hard to imagine she'd be able to beat all but one American...not without the SOHL and meltdowns from several top contenders...even then they may not send her based on how she's done recently.

    So far my favorite ladies here are Yu Na, Glebova, Tugba, and (less) Julya. Fumie was good but not noteworthy. I don't like this cutesy program of Rachael's and I don't understand her score. Well, I guess I'll wait for the protocols.

    Without Mao around, Yu Na really is in a class of her own. Even though I'm tired of hearing commentators drool about her, what else can they do?

    It's called Skate America!! You'd expect a bit favorism from the host country. It's really about UR calls, which is why this system sucks. Both of Rachel's jumps looked suspicious rotation-wise. But i assume she got the benefit of doubt from the controller.
