    Pairs SP

    What a great competition already after one group! G/E and V/T were both great and clean! Katarina and ALexander impressed me with their great 3F throw and amazing side by side spins with wonderful unison - for any team, but even more for a new team with a partner who is new to pairs.

    V/T were just fantastic. THey have the best twist in the world, IMO.

    Scores after one group:
    1 Tatiana Volosozhar / Maxim Trankov
    MoE 72.71 38.21 34.50 8.68 8.50 8.68 8.64 8.64 0.00 # 3
    2 Katarina Gerboldt/ Alexander Enbert
    SPB 61.99 33.93 28.06 6.96 6.71 7.11 7.11 7.18 0.00 # 2
    3 Anastasia Martyusheva/ Alexei Rogonov
    MoE 47.38 25.66 22.72 5.75 5.46 5.57 5.82 5.79 1.00 # 1

    That triple twist is jaw dropping. They were gorgeous! They sure did put pressure on the rest of the pack to deliver! Also, good program from Katarina and Alexander! They looked so relaxed out there.

    Indeed!
    What was Gerboldt doing in singles all this time? :D That girl was meant to be a pairs skater! Lovely team! That 3F gave Savchenko (sp?) a run for her money.

    V/T. Wow, just... wow.

    Mukhortova/Blanchard: their speed is improved and they are so elegant and romantic. However, they're far behind V/T element wise. THeir footwork looked very basic.

    Petaykina/Kurdyukov: A nice young team. Landed 3T and a 3FTh, but their skating needs to be bigger. Amazing that that content will get you second to last place at this point.

    Iliushechkina/Maisuradze: I love them, but their performance was a disaster and the score was a huge gift. She fell on the 3T and then they had to abort the SBS spins because they ran into each other. I don't think they deserve to be as high as they are.

    Ozerova/GOlubev: Painful.

    Gift or not, I'm actually glad I/M are still in the mix to be honest!! It's a shame, they were so consistent with this Sp! They are my favourite russian pair

    Oh, me too don't get me wrong. I'm glad they're still in it. But let's be honest - the score was too big for what they did.

    Moskvina always wanted Katarina to go to pairs, I've heard she kept her eyes on her long ago... I'm so happy for them, what a beautiful skate! What Moskvina and Dmitriev did for them is just a miracle!
    V/T are the best! They need a little more time, but I think they will be even better at Worlds.
    Sad for I/M (( I like them so much, but so many mistakes. Anyway, I'm glad that judges gave them a chance even though their scores were too high

    I like a lot Katarina and Alexander, but they are still a bit stiff. But their potential is huge!! And what I really love about them is that you can sense how happy and relaxed are out there! V/T already have "champions" written all over them
