    Suzuki had the skate of the season, but she was overscored---a little home ice advantage which perhaps she deserved after NHK.
    It is like Yu-Na's score at Worlds. This skater deserves it though. Phenomenal artiste and exquisite skater overall. REDEMPTION FOR AKIKO!!!!!

    Akiko must be thrilled with her performances I know that I am. She really rocked both the SP & LP, well done!

    I loved how fierce she was with her SP! Her delivery was sensational! Back in Worlds, I think the pressure got into her. I am glad she delivered during the end of the season with 2 gorgeous performances.

    That was a very strange << call for Mao's 3Axel in the SP. I'll have to see another video, but it looked like she got the rotation to me? Her upper body was off in the air and came down sideways, that was the problem. Her feet were around on the jump.

    Mao's 3a looked like a 2a landed on two feet. The call was right on.

    Try to click the replay button and look closely, because then you will notice that it was a rather rash call

    In the SP, she didn't get all the way around before she fell. Sorry, NOT rotated.

    Show proof that she did get around enough, then. Looked close to me.

    Are there any videos of Gracie or Ashley's LP?

    Checked out the video. If she had gotten all the way around, she would have fallen on her side. She fell on her stomach.

    Actually I just saw the longer SP video with the 3A replay around 4:25 ... It was definitely a downgrade to me. Her whole blade was on the ice and beyond 1/2 a rotation.
