    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.

    The Russian skaters will be very difficult to beat at home, especially in the SP. I expect them to be scored well if the jumps are there. The others will play catch up in the free skate, and these two will try to hold on to their placements. PCS will go up for European skaters slightly, down for Mao and Akiko slightly and stay about the same for Ashley.

    The skater who lands enough jumps and gets level 4's to score 190+ will win it.

    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!)!

    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 she is. She fell during practice on Wednesday. She has split her chin and got a slight concussion, so doctors recommended her to withdraw. Such a pity! I am totally upset(
