    Alissa's answers were all so very abstract, as if she were speaking of 'a skater' not necessarily herself.

    Overall, she avoided saying where her skating is on a competitive scale. IMO, she won't be fully revved up for Nationals and most likely won't finish top two---USFS won't want to base Olympic spots on the performance of a 75% skater. Top 5 would be a respectable finish.

    As long as she isn't at worlds (or Olys) to do it again there...I'm cool.

    I hope she's able to do a good job! Just seeing her on the ice again will be wonderful, but I'm always anxious.

    Every time Alissa takes the ice, I am anxious. I'm always expecting a splat on that opening jump. If she gets past that first pass without the splat, I can relax a bit!

    Very beautiful performance for a first time out after an injury. Her layback is absolutely stunning! She looks like she is in great physical shape as well. She does need to skate with more speed going into the jumps though. I think that would alleviate two foot landings. I can't wait to see her at Nationals!

    That SP is almost as good as any SP she has put out there in recent years.

    Pretty good performance. I do agree she needs a little more speed so she doesn't botch the jumps. The lack of transitions is a bit of a concern....though she will rack up points on those spins -- beautiful!
