    The exit edge he has on the quad salchow is just a beauty!! I'm in awe everytime I see him do that jump.

    Like Serious Business said, Fernandez still has work to do in the PCS department (skating skills) and he even lost on TES which shows that in spite of the quads, there were mistakes throughout the program.

    Fernandez led Takahashi by around 4-5 points after the SP, Takahashi beat him by 4 points on PCS here (rightfully, it should actually be even more IMO) and then beat him on TES.

    Why do you think is that? what would be the object of overmarking a skater, a spaniard skater that is? If it was one from a country with a greater tradition I could think of something, but from Spain? I can't imagine why do that.

    What I find weird is that Javi's edgework seems to be quite good, he just can't generate much speed from that during his footwork. Very few actually can, but it is really noticeable when 3 of those guys who do (Patrick, Dai and Jeremy) are in the same competition and skating right before and after you.

    Because he has a Canadian coach?

    That sucks. We'll both have to catch Daisuke's LP post-competition. Watch what's left anyway!

    So sad. He's literally poetry on ice, but the two falls won't cut the mustard. And when I watch him skate I can't just sit back, relax, and enjoy. Rather, there is tension/knot in my stomach and I find myself praying fervently and crossing my fingers when he goes for a jump. Too stressful.

    But man, even if he never wins a World or an Olympic Medal of any kind, it is HE I will remember long after skating has quints/et al.
