    I think Mao's win was justified Julia is extremely promising and will be a threat in the final, I think. But she seemed quite tentative today! She *is* fourteen and in her JGP, she shouldn't be too hard on herself!

    Lipnitskaya really needs to work on her jumps when she's nervous like that--almost every jump landed had zero flow out and was bent over at the waist. She lost a lot of speed near the end of the program as well, particularly on the step sequence.

    I'm glad that placed behind Asada.

    She does need to work some on her jumps but I do want to point out out that her jumps actually were way off tonight compared to how they generally are. They are usually much better.

    Julia was incredible to me! Good she got 2 place. Now she knows she isn't invincible - she has things to work on. She could have easily won if she did what she CAN do. And that's a good sign that even with errors she can still make the 2 place finish

    Yes, Julia was really off tonight (but here's just morning!), she almost fell in the 2A+3T, which is usually a strong combo for her, she didn't make any mistake in it during the past season... Mao's win was the correct result: the quality of her program was far ahed Julia's, the difference in the PCS should have been higher, I think deserved her score, Mao's should have been 66-67! I'm sad Mirai didn't get a medal, Kiira's program was good, but not THAT good, I think she was a bit overscored...

    and she will work more on her transitions to increase more her PCS, Julia still has chance to get to the GPF

    If that's how Julia skates when she is "off"... Watch out, World! She really does have a spirit of a champion

    I usually don't like Julia's style, but I thought she would be the 1st since she attempted difficult jumps. She was underscored compared to Mao, I think.

    Lovely skate from Mao, but I enjoyed her performance at Japan Open more. The music suits her very well. Much better than her SP. Generous score considering no 3-3, 3Lz, and 2ft landing on combination.

    Congarts to Mao deserving win
    a little off on her FS standard but I'm sure Julia will be better by her next GP, she is a very diligent girl

    Protocols are up

    Asada got << on the 3T in her 2A+3T, but also both her flips got <. So she only got credit for 3 triple jumps. Also the 2nd +2Lo got <

    Lipnitskaia got < on her 3Lz in her 3Lz+3T

    Nagasu got << on both 3T and 3Lo, plus < on 3Lz, both 3F's and a +2Lo. That explains her low TES

    Li got < on a 3Lz and 3F on which she fell

    Miss Asada was overscored in PCS. A 64 for that mediocre skate?

    Protocols are out. The score was fair. Look at Mirai's jump quality: almost every jump was unclean. Kiira never gets "e" and quite rarely < or <<. I wish she would leave her flip away. I remember she has made it cleanly probably twice during past 5 years.

    Mao was fantastic. But Julia... techincally just amazing but the rest... blah. She could give so much more with a better program. And I wish she would leave those unmeaningful leg lifts away. And I wonder the judge. Somebody gave her 8.25 from transitions. 8.25?! She has just circling and circling between elements. And besides that - she had all the jumps in a row, just one FCSp4 between. Coreography 7.25, just give me a break. I thought I understand this sport but apparently not.

    I agree that Julia was undermarked and had her name been Kaetlyn Osmond instead of Julia Lipnitskaya, she would have scored 120+!. However, Mao was the deserved winner, but I remain concerned about Mao's technical frailties.

    In terms of Julia, the fact that she didn't win on her GP debut will probably be a good thing in the long term. It will make her even more determined and incentivised to improve further. She is still only 14 after all.
