Tuk Tuk 26 min. talk show interview with one of her coaches Svetlana
can anyone translate what she is saying ?
Тhe most interesting for me - Liza is sure that she`ll jump guard. She tried already.
In the future she wants to be the sport psychologist.
Now she trains and waits whether ISU will allow her to take part in the World Team Champ.
In the summer she `ll train with Mishin`s group in Spain,Italy and Estonia. In Mishin`s plans for her there is no any vacations.
She likes to dance very much. If she wouldn`t be the skater she would become the dancer.
but what do you mean jump guard ?
Liza wants to get her quadruple jumps ?
well, I believe Tukt will be the first lady if she can successfully land
both a quad Toe and quad Salcow in a competition, correct ?
I know Miki Ando has done the quad salchow jump
It would be amazing if she could come into Sochi with two different quads and a triple axel. However I'd much rather see better spins and ice coverage first as that will bring similar rewards with less risk
the way she starts her jump at an axel technique is fine, if she can land a 3a in practice then why not in a competition ?
I do think she will attempt it already by next season, even Mishin has stated this in his recent interviews
not sure about a quad maybe in the near future

Liza is my fav ingénue from the ladies this year (Hanyu for the men) for her musicality and interpretation which are mature beyond her years though still have a long way to go before she catches up with the greats like Yuna Kim. I prefer her to Julia right now, although I think Julia has better mileage and sporting goods to surpassing everyone and likely reign as the world no.1 for many years, that and a very strong contender for the Olympic champion at Sochi.
Ice is slippery. She definitely has huge potential. She still needs oomph - amplitude on her ice coverage, height and power and flow out on the jumps and crisper spins.
That said, I don't think that Mishin will force her to go overboard on jumps. He knows that the ultimate goal is Sochi, and I don't think he'll try to get her to do too much.
