    Julia Lipnitskaya:
    "Real Assad is the same, as in the TV"
    FIGURE SKATING

    The debutant of Senior "Grand Prix" Julia Lipnitskaya began on Friday the performances in a champion series from winning the short program, ahead the twice world champion and the main favourite of an Event Mao Asada, the special correspondent of "SE" Elena Vaytsehovskaya transfers from Shanghai.

    - Julia, a year ago you as surely acted in the JGP Ffinal in Quebec and surely won it. Now for the first time in life you are in an Senior Event of GP. Is the difference in feelings?

    - No. Unless the combo (3Lz+3T - E.V comment.) I jump now better.

    - Really didn't worry at all?

    - And what for?

    - After all the first serious start, a lot of the audience on tribunes, Mao Asada in one locker room...

    - Asada, by the way, just the same, as in the TV. Nothing special.

    - That is for you at all has no value with whom to compete? You come for the first time on so serious competition and you do not look around at all?

    - Why? On ice I look around very attentively. To not to face with somebody.

    - And why after skating you were so obviously dissatisfied with scores?

    - It seemed to me that scores for pure skating could be higher. I, at the beginning of October in Finland on the Finlandia Trophy, had "-2" for the combo. Thus total score was 64.05. And now 63.06.

    - And how it was possible to execute elements, you are happy?

    - Yes, it is absolute. Everything turned out how I wanted.

    - I know that at the beginning of a season you had quite serious problems with a left foot. Now injured foot didn't disturb?

    - Let's tell so, the doctor and the masseur made for this purpose all possible.

    - It was necessary to potter much?

    - It was necessary...

    Julia sounds like very attentive and focused student
    I read an interview that Julia is a Workaholic and had to be stopped from practicing too many times

    Julia put out a great program. Her flexibility kinda terrifies me though. I also think it is over used. She needs to work on the little things, cleaner positions, holding jump landings ect. Great senior skate for her though!

    I was unable to see Mao's program as it was not available on mobile.

    Mirai skated great despite two footing her 3T. I think the program suits her fun personality. Great footwork and her spins are amazing. I'm pulling for her in the long.

    Kira reminds me of Carolina Kostner in a way. She is enjoyable to watch!

    I know things are translated differently from language to language. But in that particular translation, she sounds a little...arrogant.

    well she is still a child, what I got from that interview though google translate sucks
    is that Julia didn't paid attention on the other skaters as she was focusing on how to perform her programs

    though I think her coach Eteri should have told her the scoring in Finlandia was Inflated

    In original text - no.

    I'm not a professional translator (and do not know English really well), so may be miskakes in tone and spirit.

    - it is all Julia. She is really such, and we love her such.

    I thought the same thing. This "What should I be nervous for?" or "Asada by the way - nothing special"... and her reaction to her score. She really sounds spoiled by the judges here.
    In every other interview she sounded very sweet, a lot of respect for other skaters and very driven. Maybe this is really just a language-thing

    She sounds a bit arrogant to me as well. It would be nice if she could bring that arrogance to her skating. She has personality in spades but somehow she skates like a robot. It's like she is not enjoying it at all. Plus, she could pay attention to how other skate. Maybe she would realize that jumps aren't everything. Despite her amazing flexibility and jump consistency her skating skills are not that good. She could work on her edges and flow across the ice as well. Of course she has plenty of time to time to do it. And her 2axel technique is atrocious! If she grows a bit, I bet she will struggle with this particularly jump

    I'd take it as a grain of salt. Google Translate sucks

    If it would be still computer translation, it would be much worse and some parts would be ununderstandable.
    I corrected manually computer translation, but problem is in my not so good English.
    If somebody may translate better and will do it - welcome!

    Skater must skate as good as possible regardless to other competitors. So no attention to others, all attention to her(him)self.
    Skaters don't look to skating of others before them, many of them close ears to not hear scores.
    It is normal for individual sports.

    Her score at World Juinors (with less expensive 3T+3T) was slightly (0.03 point) higher.
    In fact, problem was in edge call of 3F. If not so, score would be higher.
    Julia is clever and diligent girl, I believe she will correct her 3F.

    I'm sorry AlexRus if our comments made it sound like we aren't appreciating your effort - it's not like that. It's much appreciated and I think you're doing a really good job, so thank you. It's probably really just how things sound different in different languages.

    Nice skate by the ladies. I do like Korpi - she is very elegant and beautiful and so well dressed but I do find her overscored in fairness to the other ladies. She somehow always makes a mistake and I don't find her skating skills significant enough to hold her up - she should be say 2 points down imho = though she is a thing of beauty lol. Nice work by Mao and Julia - Julia needs to senior up her routines but that will come. Liked the joy of Mao but not sure it is the best COP program especially artistically. Mind you Katarina Witt got away with it but she is Katarina Witt lol. Nice work by Mirai - she isn't giving it up to Miss Gold, Agnes, Alissa, Wagner, Zhang, Gao and all. Lacoste is fighting too - I wonder what seriously is going on in that head of hers with Osmond breathing down her back or maybe better put moved past her as the Canadian "it" girl.

    Julia's spin is just ! Her flexibility and speed of her spin are just incredible. It's great that she tried difficult jumps, but they look somewhat tiny, and she has no flow out of the jumps at all. Anyway it was brilliant performance, I think she was underscored a little.

    So happy to see bright Mao! Her lightness, softness, and flow are just amazing. Jumps look tiny and some spin looks slow, though. She was enjoying her skate and it makes me happy, but the program was too juniorish for her. I felt like watching 14-year-old Mao.

    I enjoyed Mirai's skating! The music suits her well, and it was a good program. She looks heavy though.

    Zijun was just amazing! It was delightful to watch, and her jumps look solid. She wuz robbed!

    Nothing special with respect to that she've seen at TV.
    She did not tell that Asada is "nothing special".

    Now i remember a Sotnikova's interview at YOG, where she told "we and other children" (about competitors).
    Somebody screamed "She called other competitors children!!!", but in fact she said so about all the competitors - herself, Tuktamysheva and others. Maybe, emphasising that competitions are not Senior.
