    In any permutation of the ladies, I hope that Gracie and Ashley manage an average of 13th place. The US would really like those three spots back.

    Ladies
    1.Yuna Kim
    2.Carolina Kostner
    3.Mao Asada
    4.Ashley Wagner
    5.Kaetlyn Osmond:I'm not sure if judges would like her performance, but well, it's going to be held in Canada so...
    6.Adelina Sotnikova:Only if she manages to skate well like she did at Euros.
    7.Elizaveta Tuktamysheva
    8.Gracie Gold
    9.Kiira Korpi
    10.Murakami Kanako
    11.Suzuki Akiko
    12.Zijun Li

    Ice Dance
    1.Tessa Virtue/Scott Moir:Because they're my favorite ice dancers But they really need to improve their FD otherwise, D/W will win gold.
    2.Meryl Davis/Charlie White
    3.Nathalie Pechalat/Fabian Bourzat

    So, for ladies, 3 spots for US, S.Korea, Russia(maybe not) and maybe, Japan.

    I am surprised to see akiko so high on your list. I would love for this to happen but I just don't see her getting the components to place 2nd!

    If the judges are fair with PCS and don't lowball Suzuki and give Asada and Kostner super-inflated presentation scores for 4-triple programs: 1. Kim 2. Suzuki 3-4. Kostner/Asada 5.Wagner 6-8. Tuktamysheva/Sotnikova/Osmond 9. Murakami 10. Gold 11. Li. If PCS continue to be a joke, then: 1. Kostner 2. Asada 3. Kim 4. Wagner 5. Suzuki, the rest should be about the same. Tuktamysheva, Osmond, or Sotnikova could make the top 5 if they skate perfectly and others make mistakes. I think Gracie Gold's best case is 6th unless she skates perfect programs and the top five favorites are a total mess.

    My predictions:

    1. Yuna Kim 2.Carolina Kostner 3-4. Akiko Suzuki/Ashley Wagner 5. Mao Asada 6-7. Elizaveta Tuktamysheva/Adelina Sotnikova 8. Kaetlyn Osmond 9. Gracie Gold 10. Zijun Li.

    Yuna is a total package out of question. This World title's gonna be hers. The defending champ Carolina has an amazing LP to Bolero, which I think will be her signature program. Akiko has been undervalued but she sure deserves a fair judgment. Ashley can claim the third place if she skates clean both SP&LP and lands 3-3. Mao has been unbeaten so far this season but I doubt if she can make it at Worlds with her unmastered jumps. Two russian compatriots, Liza and Adelina, will be likely to secure 3 spots for Sochi 2014. Kaetlyn will be strong on her home ice. Who knows? She may be able to skate in the LP final group by some magic. Gracie will have to handle herself under pressure and skate with improved maturity. Lastly, I put the young chinese skater in my list. Zijun has the quality to stand on the World podium in a few years after some of the top skaters above retire.
