    Mao skated like nobody else. Too bad about the Axel.

    Mao just keeps evolving. I couldn't have imagined Mao skating with such a theatrical style.
    Easily my favourite program after Kostner's SP.

    Jumps :(
    Spins!
    Steps!!!!!

    OMG, I almost crying, when she first stepped out on the ice I thought I was seeing Michelle Kwan from the 1996 Worlds (except for the pants that is).

    However, Michelle always had the tiger in the eye look, you knew she was going to nail, the same quality that Evgeni Plushenko has (you cannot teach it), whereas Mao always reminds me of a fragile doe. Even moreso now with how emaciated she's gotten (even at the Olympics she didn't look like that).

    But those spins are to die for (you know she's a pupil of the Satos by just one glimpse of her glorious spot on a dime spins!!!!). And her artistry has improved even tenfold. What a joy it is to watch her skate, seriously!!!!

    Can't wait to see this program skated to its full potential, hopefully at Worlds, complete with jumps, what a masterpiece it would be...

    Nadine I was thinking Michelle Kwan-Salome when I saw Mao's costume. Beautifully skated program
    to bad about her 3A. Mao's step sequence was gorgeous.

    Thee most unappealing unaesthetically women's skater I've ever seen (ten times worse than the French girl in this competition; moreso with the fake sexiness, bleh).

    Don't give a fig about her jumps, just hate her style, everything! YUCK!!!!

    SUZUKI!!!!!! That's her best SP performance ever, I think, and the best female SP performance of the year thus far.

    The Brits said the Russian is more artistic. Think Akiko might not beat the Russian.

    WHAT!

    Not a fan of Akiko (though I am starting to warm up to her, but will never be a fan), however even I can see that she easily deserves 1st place.

    Still, I soooo wish Yuna Kim would come back for Worlds (just like she did last year), but this year she can win it all without Miki Ando in the competition. I'd rather see her win any day over Alissa, Carolina, and Akiko. Just being honest is all. That is unless Mao can get her act together and land all her jumps, etc., but that's a big if, she still needs a couple more years with the Satos imho.

    Alena LEONOVA received higher PE and IE scores than Mao did. And her total PCS was merely 0.12 less than Mao's.
