    * If this slot isn't filled by Chris and Cathy Reed, I'll be very much surprised.

    ** I had heard this team had split up?

    This will be a very interesting dance competition, with the excitement being how I/K match up against S/B and C/L, not to mention W/P and R/S, for a hint of what will happen at Russian championships. The Shibutanis announced their programs very early this year, and I expect them to be really ready for this competition. And the other question is, "Will D&W arrive at their first competition in their usual state of total readiness, or will they have slipped a bit, due to all those SOI shows they skated?"

    What about Takahashi/Tran? I hope they will compete there.

    My guess is that they will get the TBA pairs slot. However, it may be because they are still skating on the JGP and there might be a conflict?

    Update on the Ladies' rooster:
    http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=1994

    Looks like the JSF gave up the 1 TBA slot.

    Why on earth did they do that? There's a handfull of ladies in the Seniors craving for the chance: Nana, Shoko, Satsuki, Mari Suzuki, Mutsumi... Nana's currently out of shape but she scored 150's constantly in years 2007-2008, 2008-2009. Not meaning to critisize her but the chance ending up being given to an old girl like Jenna McCorkell instead of the younger Japanese ladies, is kind of sad.
