    Predictions

    I meant to actually try my hand at predicting results for Cup of China,
    but got distracted after Skate Canada and missed my chance...
    Sooo I know it's way early, but I wanted to make sure I did it while it's on
    my mind.

    Predictions, anyone?

    Sorry. I meant to edit after I first posted, but it's a bit hard to cut and paste on my iPod.
    Thanks for posting the entries.

    naw that's cool.
    For ladies I want to see Mao skate a clean program. I don't care if she wins or not. I just want her to go clean even if that means water down tech content.
    1. Akiko
    2. Wagner
    3. Leonova

    I think the Japanese men have a relatively easy field that they are up against. As long as Takahashi and Kozuka don't mess up too bad they will podium.
    1. Takahashi
    2. Kozuka
    3. Verner

    DANCE
    1/2. Shibutanis or W/P (if the Shibutanis get low levels again they'll definitely be behind a clean W/P)
    3. Lynn/Logan (predicting an upset! They've scored higher than both P/I and Z/G this season, shame they don't have two GPs; I/K seem to be struggling a bit)
    4. I/K
    5. Z/G or P/I

    And I'm going to be completely optimistic and maybe unrealistic and say Asada wins it.
    But I wouldn't mind if Akiko does instead.

    I agree with your men's result. Either Kozuka or Takahashi have it in the bag.

    Men
    Takahashi
    Mroz
    Verner

    Does Kozuka go for a 4T(<) in the SP? I think he does and that will assure Takahashi's win. I'm more interested in Mroz's quad lutz attempt.

    Ladies
    Asada
    Suzuki
    Leonova

    Foreign ladies have never scored higher than 165 points at NHK trophy. The winner will be Asada or Suzuki. In past, Asada has no bad performance at the same competitions with Suzuki and never lost to her. The biggest question is whether Suzuki can handle her nerves. Past records show that she performs well only when there is not much pressure.

    Pair
    S / S
    K / S
    T / T

    Takahashi/Tran should be placed two notches above where they actually deserve.

    So Adrian Schultheiss has withdrawn because of injury practicing at Coupe de Nice.

    Sadly, due to back injury, Adrian will not be competing at the NHK Trophy, which will be held in Sapporo, Japan from 11th to 13th November. Adrian had an X-ray at a hospital a few days ago, and it has turned out that he has a spinal disc herniation, which means he has to rest his back for two weeks, avoiding movements such as forward bending that can cause further pain. At the moment Adrian is allowed to walk and just slide around on the ice, and he will see a doctor again for a follow-up in two weeks.
    Sad for him. This guy doesn't need more troubles.

    I wish there could be a substitute. Who is next in turn? What is the time limit?
    Just eight men in China and now nine in Japan so far.

    Excited to see what Asada and Verner will do this season!

    Men:
    Menshov
    Kozuka
    Verner

    Ladies:
    Suzuki
    Wagner
    Leonova

    Pairs:
    Savchenko/Szolkowy
    Kavaguti/Smirnov
    Takahashi/Tran

    Some clips from Mao's practice sessions (recently aired but filmed most likely in September):

    Mao and coach Sato say that right now their goal is to gradually improve Mao's speed (aiming for Sochi) and master 3Lz.

    Edit: Is that Ai Sugiyama? (retired tennis player)
