    Who among the Ladies has a 3-3 this year?

    Just starting a thread given all the chatter about 3-3 combos elsewhere on this forum.

    So far the reports state:

    Christina Gao did a 3F-3T at Skate Detroit.
    Agnes Z. did a 3T-3T at the Broodmoor Open.
    Ashley Wagner is attempting to do a 3F-3T as well.

    Someone mentioned in the Yuna news thread that Mao's looking to do a 3L-3L. That would be interesting considering that no one has done that combo in a while. (Tara Lipinski is the one famous for that one, of course).

    Any other reports?

    Angela Wang landed a 3Lz+3T with positive GOE in the Junior Ladies Final (FS) at Liberty, as well as a 2A+3T with positive GOE (both are new combinations for her this season). She placed 7th in Junior at 2010 US Nationals.

    Liza T, Polina A, Polina S all have 3lz-3t (or used to)

    Ksenia has 3t-3t and according to Johnny does 3lz-3t in practice

    Mirai has started trying for 3lz-3t and has a very solid 2a-3t now

    Laura I assume will continue to do her 3t-3t

    Miki might try for 3lz-3lo again now that the UR rules have changed

    Rachael has 3f-3t and is working on 3lz-3t according to Tom Z

    I'm very excited to see how competitive the Ladies get with the jumps now that underrotations are finally graded more fairly. I think this would be the best layout for Mirai:

    3Lutz-3Toe
    2Axel-3Toe
    3Flip
    ---------
    3Lutz
    3Sal
    2Axel-2Toe-2Loop
    3Loop

    Is Mirai adding a 3 salchow to her LP this season? She actually presents some issues for maximizing jump points if she hopes to include a 3lz/3t in her LP and no salchow. Her combos last season were 3lz/2/2, 2ax/3t and 3lp^2ax. Then she'd have solo 3lz, 3f and a 3rd 2ax. If she does the 3lz/3t, 2ax/3t, 3fl, 3lz, 3lp^2ax, that is only 5 jumping passes.

    Hope she is adding a salchow!

    But I bet we end up seeings 3lz/3t in the SP and for the LP:

    3lz/2t/2lp
    2ax/3t
    3f
    ------
    3lz
    3lp
    2ax

    ((with 2toe aded to one of the solo jumps))
