    GP Final Analysis and Predictions

    Ladies

    Elizaveta
    Mao
    Carolina
    Akiko
    Alissa
    Alena

    The women's event is basically wide open. Any one of them can win. Whoever skate the cleanest. Mao will probably win since she has room for error due to pcs. Elizaveta has been the most consistent this season. She is practically guaranteed to get a medal of some kind. I will say Mao- gold, Elizaveta- silver, and Alissa or Carolina bronze.

    Mens:

    Patrick
    Daisuke
    Jeremy
    Michal
    Javier
    Yuzuru

    The men will be a battle between Patrick, Daisuke, and Javier. If of those three skate clean he will win. If they all falter Patrick will win. Yuzuru is the dark horse of this competition. If Michal and Jeremy get there tech together they will be competitive but I doubt that will happen in two weeks. Takahashi -gold , Patrick -silver, Javier-bronze

    Pairs
    V/T
    S/S
    K/S
    Z/Z
    T/T
    D/R

    The pairs is once again an three men race between V/T,S/S,K/S. S/S have an edge if everyone goes clean. If S/S goes for the 3A, anyone of the teams could win. S/S =gold, K/S- silver, V/T bronze

    Dance

    Its the D/W and V/M show. D/W is going to loose the SD but have enough lead in the FD to take gold. If V/M manage to clean up there tech and get those lv4's that been eluding them there lead in the SD will be enough to take gold. W/P should take the bronze.

    LADIES

    1) Asada 2) Tuktamysheva 3) Kostner

    MEN

    1) Chan 2) Takahashi 3) Fernandez

    I wish Takahashi would win, but I don't think he's going to. I know Daisuke got a really high score at NHK, but they'll probably score Patrick even higher at the GPF. He's just Chan, he almost always wins.

    PAIRS

    1) Volosozhar/Trankov 2) Savchenko/Szolkowy 3) Kavaguti/Smirnov

    This was hard to call.. S/S could win if they skate like they did at COR, not like how they skated at their first two events. If they skate like they did at their second event, they could fall off the podium and the Zhangs could get on, but I don't think they're going to skate that badly.

    DANCE

    1) Virtue/Moir 2) Davis/White 3) Pechalat/Bourzat

    Given D/W's troubles at this last event (COR) I think it's V/M's to take. I think their programs are slightly better this season than D/W's and we haven't seen THEM fall. I'm hoping for Pechalat/Bourzat for third instead of the Shibutanis and I think they'll be able to get it.

    I'm not sure they will compete. Every competition he's mentioned an injury of some sort.

    So if V/T are not in, is it Moore-Towers/Moscovitch? I'm assuming it's them and not Berton/Hotarek because Berton/Hotarek got a 4th and MT/M got two 3rds?

    I'm pretty sure they will compete. Trankov said he has some pain but will persevere and won't have surgery for right now. Unless the injury becomes horrible, they will be in. I wouldn't bet on M-T/M substituting them.

    Yes. B/H have a 3rd and a 4th, Mt/M have two 3rds.

    I'm not betting on it. I just want credit for mentioning it first, that's all. If I'm wrong.... well, I'm wrong a lot. No one will remember me being wrong this specific time.

    V/T will compete in GPF,
    They mentioned they had some problems with some of the executions at TEB but did not mention undergoing any sort of surgery
    or WD .

    I'm betting on Akiko winning GPF. the rest of the ladies have a spot for the rest of the remaining podiums, I will not jynx it again hoping before Alena will not medal , LOL
    the men a bit unpredictable so anything can happen for them.

    Men - This has not been a good event for Takahashi historically, but perhaps this is his time to pull it off. Chan will be feeling the pressure of defending and the judges will give Takahashi the PCS.
    1. Takahashi
    2. Chan
    3. Fernandez
    4. Hanyu
    5. Abbott
    6. Brezina

    Ladies - My predicted top 5 for Worlds are the same as the current standings of these ladies in terms of total scores on the Grand Prix. I'll stick with that here and slate Tuktamisheva in right behind Asada, as that makes sense.
    1. Asada
    2. Tuktamisheva
    3. Kostner
    4. Suzuki
    5. Czisny
    6. Leonova

    Pairs - Every placement here seems obvious to me. Volosozhar/Trankov could of course win Gold, but Savchenko/Szolkowy posted a massive number at Cup of Russia and seem to have gotten their programs down pat now.
    1. Savchenko/Szolkowy
    2. Volosozhar/Trankov
    3. Kavaguti/Smirnov
    4. Zhang/Zhang
    5. Duhamel/Radford
    6. Takahashi/Tran

    Dance - Even with hometown bonus, I think Davis/White will take it. People simply like their program more this year.
    1. Davis/White
    2. Virtue/Moir
    3. Pechalat/Bourzat
    4. Weaver/Poje
    5. Bobrova/Soloviev
    6. Shibutani/Shibutani

    1. Takahashi
    2. Chan
    3. Fernandez
    4. Abbott
    5. Hanyu
    6. Brezina

    If Takahashi can skate like NHK he will probably win. I dont think Chan will do anywhere close to a clean performance.


    Ladies:

    1. Kostner
    2. Tuktamisheva
    3. Suzuki
    4. Asada
    5. Czisny
    6. Leonova

    Mao does not impress me as much as she does some this year. She isnt skating clean programs even without doing the triple axel, and her PCS still arent huge either. Still this is pretty open. Tuktamisheva will win if she hits all her jumps and the veterans all continue to not skate clean programs.



    Pairs:

    1. Volosozhar & Trankov
    2. Savchenko & Szolkowy
    3. Kavaguti & Smirnov
    4. Duhamel & Radford
    5. Zhang & Zhang
    6. Takahashi & Tran

    The Germans have had problems with their short program almost all year, except in Russia. It is hard to say what will happen between the top 2 here, could go either way.


    Dance:

    1. Davis & White
    2. Virtue & Moir
    3. Weaver & Poje
    4. Pechalat & Bourzat
    5. Bobrova & Soloviev
    6. Shibutani & Shibutani

    Home crowd will boost W&P, but not be enough of a boost for V&M.
