    I watched half of Kiira's skate, no offense against her, but I decided not to watch the rest, let alone Leonova.

    Seriously, ladiezzz is boring. *insert sleep emoticon*

    Now I'm just biding my time until the mens, force to watch pairs next, then finally the men (crossing my fingers that Evgeni Plushenko is in the audience).

    This is the first time I've watched Sofia and I really liked what I saw.
    Alena's SP is actually more interesting than I had expectated.
    Mao is lovely. So good to see her smile again.

    First, it really annoys me that the British eurosport commentators said Asada only won the short because of her reputation. Seriously? Did they not watch her skate? Imo, she was in a class of her own, and what more do the judges want? She should be getting at least 8's in PCS! :P

    Second, where in Alena's program are there transitions or choreography worthy of 7 and 7.50? I absolutely agree that her skating skills, performance and interpretation should be in the 7-8 range, but the program is stripped of transitions and the choreography/composition sucks! No offence, but it shouldn't take 1 minute to perform a SlSt!

    Third, Sotnikova seems to be thinking too much. Her mistakes are basically because of hesitations. Same goes with Korpi

    Fourth, can the ladies become any more boring? :P lol!

    Sofia was a nice surprise, but she certainly has a job to do with her PCS...

    Mao and Adelina are the best skaters here! Lovely, lovely!

    I can see the influence of Mao and Yu-Na in the skating of Adelina!

    Alena's skating is a hot mess. Yes she performs the hell out of her programs and has good speed and jumps but where is the choreography? Having said that the american girls need to watch Alena at least she has energy and performs when she skates. That's why it irritates me when someone like Mirai just sleepwalks through her programs and skates with no speed or attack.. Alena actually skates like she wants to be on the ice and wants to win.

    Awesome performance from Leonova. Great attack with sense of humor. The 3/3 toeloop with great speed, hight and length must be the best among the ladies for now. I love that she dares to do something different from the many soft ladies programs. She could well have been in first place. Mao's performance was nice… nice and safe. Hope she shows more GO tomorrow.

    Beautiful skate from Mao she was on and has such a presence on the ice, loved it. Happy for Alena excellent skated program, have not seen protocols yet
    but did she have the highest tes? Her program is growing on me.

    US ladies and Kiri Korpi ouch.

    Any video playback for Adelina's SP ?

    she was thinking too much, nerves again ?
    I hope she can still improve and maybe bump Alena, still hoping Adelina gets to go to GPF with Mao
    a 3rd finish again for Adelina will not be good

    She did a combo on her second jumping pass. What was her score? 58? She would probably be bunched up somewhere with Mao and Leonova, probably in second.

    ETA: I also hate her costume and think her program is a generic COP program. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0619eIbvZY
    While I think she has a nice presence on the ice, I actually thought Rachael Flatt's program was more interesting from a choreographic and musical standpoint. Mao was the class of this field. If anything, she is being under-marked on PCS.
