    I 'd rather come here and focus on what's going to happen in two weeks.
    I don't think with Mao's current level, she will win in GPF, more likely she will be off the podium. When all top skaters are in the same event, bonus points won't be that much.
    I feel Akiku is currently the strongest lady in all aspects. Hope judges will do her justice and she gets the gold.
    Ashley second based on her consistency but no 3-3.
    Liza third.

    The 2003-2004 GPF with Sasha Cohen. That's the last time a lady from the US won two GP gold.

    And it was the first season when the IJS was used in international competitions... It looks really like a long time ago (Michelle was still competing!)!

    But Alissa Czisny won the GPF two seasons ago.

    The question I answered was When was the last time a U.S. lady qualified in the No. 1 spot. It also was the last time that a U.S. lady won both her GP events to qualify, that's what I meant. Alissa was 1st and 3rd to qualify. She was close to the No. 1 spot. She was No. 2.

    Yes, Ashley was really the best at Events.
    Superior stability and very good presentation are her advantages. Not so excellent jumping content and skating skills - disadvantages.
    Because of these disadvantages, she may be not first in Final.
    Akiko, with her good jums (I remember how she jumped at NHK - really "effortless throughout", good exits, I was really happy to see it) and realy nice skating, Kiira (good jumps, nice skating), Liza (who restores now) - they all may pretend to gold. Ashley too, of course.

    But Mao's place in standings is result of unadequate judging. Her corrupted jumps, if adequate judging, would leave her out of Final.

    According to any eyes with possibility to see.

    Update: I love very much famous skater Mao Asada with her three 3A (two in combos) at Olympics-2010 and many other excellent skatings at many competitions.
    But if I see skater with only three triples in FS, I can only wish this skater to restore, not to have high place for such a skating.
    Jumps are not the all in figire skating, but they are half of the all. For good place must be both - good jumps and good non-jumping.

    you have good arguments but why resort to hyperbole?
    winning with 3 triple jumps is indefensible but saying that she should be out of the finals is quite a stretch, imo.
