    Did Rachel do a double-triple as her opening jump?

    Yes. She doubled the lutz and put a 3T after

    Yes, I think that's very rare.

    Yes, and the 3T was underrotated.

    yes, in error. I think that her second jump might have been URed or DG'ed though.

    Also, I think Skate America really has no hometown bonus to speak of, because the scores the American ladies/pairs got with quite low.

    That is what you think. For whom? Not for me.

    Yes, Rachael and Caroline especially got NO PCS boost whatsoever- I think Caroline's PCS were actually lower than NHK. :O

    On replay it looked a double -double as second jump appeared to be UR.
    Her marks seemed high for a 1 triple SP.....

    Because she looked faster and skated well. I noticed that her ice coverage looked improved too.

    Who would've thought Joshi'd be in 3rd here? Well done!

    This was a pathetic event altogether. To have the winner doing a 3t-2t combo is simply laughable. Women skating is sinking in a rapid fashion. Yu Na come back to the rescue, please!!!

    Well, you certainly can't expect everyone to perform at the level of the best one out there!

    And did you see NHK?! I think that one was worse...this one was destined to not be that great (Seeds were Lepisto and Kostner)

    I wonder why? Presumably the lack of an audience cheering the skaters (compared to NHK or SC) hurts.
