    I was going to start a thread for Alexander, but then I noticed we have one already...maybe it will be a bit more active now.

    He won his first gold in a senior competition today, beating his countryman (and fellow Mishin student) Artur Dmitriev Jr. by more than 30 points.

    http://nice-baie-des-anges.fr/images...l/CAT005RS.HTM

    I like him a lot, but I'm ready to see some different kinds of programs from him...wonder what he will do in the gala tomorrow?

    Oh, I love him - so yay, a thread! I was actually wondering about starting one, but I'm really bad about finding out news and such things, so... I had no idea either that one already existed.

    I actually love his SP - seeing that for the first time at his first JGP this season was what made him a Favourite of mine. When it ended I found myself thinking - to my surprise - "You know what? I really loved that!" And I've rewatched it countless times, and enjoyed it even more each time.

    Yes, me too. The SP was a big transition from last season. Very mature & charismatic. No longer the feel of a junior skater.

    I was thinking of reviving this thread, but I guess y'all beat me to the punch. Congratulations to Petrov for winning his first senior competition. May the triple axel be with him for JGPF.

    There is a poll on Petrov's vk fan-club that asks "do you think Alexander will try the quad this year" (correct me if I'm wrong, i used google to translate). If you click on the "Да" (yes) option right at the top, it will show you the vk IDs of the people who voted yes and one of them is Petrov himself. lol
    http://vk.com/club43280817?w=poll-43280817_500
    So maybe he might add the quad into his LP later in the season. But much will depend on whether Mishin thinks he is ready I suppose.

    Well, actually I think he can wait for another year to try out the quad. He might have landed it now in practice already, I guess. But I don't think you must put it in junior. I think junior you should stay as clean as you want, don't push too much.
    He is just 15 while Boyang and Shoma are almost 17 (and both don't have reliable 3A like Petrov).

    I don't think he needs to bring the quad to juniors. In fact, I don't care much if he wins JGPF or Junior Worlds. I want him and his team to do what's best for the long haul. (Now, what exactly that is, I don't know. Should he start the quad early so he can keep the good technique forever? Or should he wait until after he's done growing, to avoid injuries?)

    Lol, if he brings the quad, do you think he has any chance at Russian Nationals? I mean, he came close to beating Voronov in the SP.

    I wonder if he goes by Sasha or Alexander in his everyday life? Sasha is so much easier to type.

    He's definitely come a long way in just half a year. I thought he was cute at Junior Worlds...good, but not extraordinary. I do like his current programs, apart from the somewhat distorted-sounding recording on the LP (someone asked him about it in an interview, so I know it's not just me, but he said he was used to it & didn't notice). As for the quad, I think Mishin is a master of strategy and will bring it in as soon as he thinks the time is right. I guess Sasha could probably medal at Nationals, but it would be tough without any quad. I'm almost more excited for that competition than the Grand Prix, to be honest.

    Currently he is practicing 4T and 4L (August interview), of which he said he personally prefers 4L but will most probably add 4T first. I agree that a clean skate is more important than adding a quad. Nice Cup was the first clean LP in a couple of seasons. But I also see great rewards if he lands a quad. It will boost his reputation among the judges and he will move up the pecking order in RusFed's estimation. Might he try it out at the Volvo Open, where there is less pressure? I have no idea. It is still a big risk to take. I can only trust Mishin's judgment.

    As for Nationals, IF there is a quad, I think quad+ clean skate will guarantee him a podium position. Sadly, I don't think anyone will beat Kovtun unless he falls more than once. That's how held-up I think Kovtun is.

    IMO, the person he needs to beat is really Pitkeev. Eteri might still send Pitkeev to Junior Nationals and Junior Worlds, so there's a possibility of 3 showdowns between the two. Last season he lost to Pitkeev by less than 2pts at Junior Nationals and then at Junior Worlds he led Pitkeev after the SP, only to be overtaken after a messy LP. I see these two as the future of Russian mens skating, and also world skating. To get a one-up on your main rival while you are still a junior and he is technically a senior now, will be a big help down the road. Huge confidence boost and also like I mentioned, moves him ahead in the pecking order.
