    Tomas atleast looked healthy today and showed some spark.
    Now - if he can only learn the "finger" his pcs will go up

    Just a bad skate for Voronov. Hopefully he'll snap back strongly for the Free.

    Ok, know that's done, here's for some "serious" analysis.

    Technically Plush was amazing, that quad was huge. Artisticaly it's the same problem as usual: I can't help feeling I've already seen this program loads of times.

    I'm not all that keen on Stéphane's SP. I think he has done far much better in the past.

    Did anybody understand Tomas's low marks?
    Tomas' 4T was stepped out and UR'ed (close call for me), he tried to put 3T at the end of 3z but his landing of the lutz was pretty bad, hung on for dear life.. His spark was better here than at GPF but still not near of what he had shown in TEB.. I have a very strong feeling he'll be better in the LP.. Hopefully so!
    My God, the Euro guys rock!

    Steph is like a delicate flower, if you pour to much or too little water, it/he never blossoms.. I don't think this SP is doing any favours for him but he fought and he tried despite his lack of 3A! I applaud his efforts.. He has a silver under his belt anyway so he's proven himself..

    Plushenko SP:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdT_2eE9gfw

    Finally had the chance to see it for myself.. Hmmm, he was great on the jumps, untouchable..Spins are definetely not slow, they're ok. Unfortunetely this programme definetely lacks the spark he had on many previous programmes. It's purely desgined to win under the COP. I just love Plushy so much, I;'ll try to ignore this..

    So grateful for descriptions and comments here. I totally messed up on my schedule (don't ask lol). Also very grateful for the ISU Result site.
    It's nice to see the placements of my favorites in this contest. This is a very exciting event.

    Voronov will probably do better in the FS. Generally, if he does very well in the SP, he bombs in the FS, but when he is in trouble after the SP, he seems to come into the FS with major determination. I won't go into my ancient "heart of a champion" speech lol, but it is something that Voronov just does not seem to have, sorry. He, like Gryazev before him, seems able to do well enough in his national championship, but is just not a great international competitor, which Plyushchenko is.

    Keep it coming, guys, keep it coming! I loooooooove men's singles! Keep it tough! Keep it beautiful! Keep it nearly impossible!

    He still doesn't skate to music, he still has flailing arms, but who cares? I have to say that Bravo Plushenko, you are still the King!

    Euro guys rock!

    He did skate to music in the past so that "still" is a bit unfair.
    But he skated like a king for sure. I just wish he had some flavour from the old Plushy in that programme..
    Anyhow, the battle on Thursday will be great..

    I am delighted with his performance. This is a mature Yevgeny; he has worked very hard, that is clear.

    Now, if someone will please post a video of Brian's SP, I shall be so grateful!

    Just watched Plushenko. Jumps were great as usual, but other than that not much there. What was with the footwork sequences?? Why is he flailing around so much when he is skating to slow music? Subpar choreography and interpretation.

    Yay for the starting order!! Brian has to bring his A-game, because fetching out his calculator and calculating what he has to do - just won't do it this time, because the big guns skate after him.
