    Alissa looks like a goddess on the ice, so beautiful, so elegant, so regal.

    Miki seemed totally off today, sluggish, lackluster, therefore not surprised on the fall of the 3F nor the obvious UR 3/3 combo. in real time.

    BUT she wins hands down for the absolutely best exquisite dress out there....reminiscent of Kristi Yamaguchi's R&J dress....but Miki's is even lovelier imho.

    Her coach/boyfriend was staring maniacally at her!

    Score: 50.45 5th place, so Rachael Flatt comes in last place, ah Rach. :(

    Morosov always does that. If he was telekinetic, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I am so happy for Alissa and Carolina! And to think many suggested they should retire! When they are on, they are at the top. I agree with the placements

    Loved Miki's dress too. She did not do to bad given that this is the debut of her new SP.
    I think by her Nationals and definitely by Worlds she will have all of the kinks worked out.
    This was a first rate competition. Great skating from the Ladies.

    Overall lackluster competition, the very best ones are when everyone skates their best and you win, like at the most recent Olympics the Mens Final!

    But the competition is not over yet, hopefully the LPs are better, I'm not sure if I will watch though. It seems my favorites do better when I'm not watching anyway. I'm still not sure if I did the right thing by going to the 2010 Olympics to watch Zhenya skate for the gold, same as at 2010 Skate America to watch Rachael. I don't believe in jinxing, but I'm starting to have my doubts...

    And on that note I don't think they will let an American woman win the GPF even if Alissa skates clean. The USFSA no longer has the pull imho, and the new COP dropped them from 1st down to second tier. It will be a long time before we have an American Ladies World Champion, not to mention Olympic Champ. I hope the men can do better, but it doesn't look like it, they're in the same spot.

    On a good note, I'm looking forward to watching US Nationals, which I do every year!

    Yes, nice to see such lovely skating from Alissa and Carolina.
    I agree with Nadine - Miki's dress is lovely.

    Poor Rachael - it looks like she should have withdrawn as she was slower than ever and looked undertrained.
    But she is a fighter so she might dig herslef out of last place if she can manage a strong LP.

    I look for Kanako or Akiko to win this if Alissa and Caro falter in the long.

    Elegance and beauty win today.

    I've said Ladies' results all depend on which twins show up. Surprisingly, Miki has an evil twin too.

    Now I'm wondering if Rachael will withdraw like Joubert did? At least Rachael has a valid excuse whereas imho Brian did not. *thumbs down Brian*
