    Akiko Suzuki: WTT redemption

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMVfvEPNDQA

    I love the journey of Akiko Suzuki through skating and through life! I am so proud that she was able to bounce back from a disappointing worlds with her personal best FP and TS! I think her TS is the 5th highest PB of all time and her FS is the 4th highest PB of all-time!

    Let's hope the JSF keeps her on the team for Sochi.

    The free skate score is the score she should have received especially during the NHK trophy

    As much as I like Akiko as a skater and performer, the score cannot be taken very seriously.

    I'm extremely happy for Akiko. She deserved this score and I'm super glad that I was able to watch this program so well executed. One of the best performances of this season for me

    She had an UR jump at NHK, and her performance here was squeeky clean and much superior, and scoring at the WTT tends to be very highish. She was robbed of winning NHK, but not neccessarily deserving of a score over 130 there.

    Suzuki's FS scores
    @NHK TES: 64.51 (six triples) PCS: 62.11
    @4CC TES: 60.10 (six triples) PCS: 64.33
    @WTT TES: 65.76 (seven triples) PCS: 67.26

    What made the difference is PCS, not TES. She finally received PCS she deserved at WTT. I agree with christinaskater. Suzuki should have received 130+ at NHK. 66+* for PCS was enough to reach 130 and win.

    Maybe WTT was a redemption for ISU judges as well, of embarrassing themselves at NHK.

    Exactly! Properly judged, her NHK FS could have been between 130 and 135... However, this FS brings Akiko in 4th place in the FS personal best ranking (http://www.isuresults.com/isujsstat/pbslfs.htm), better than Rochette 2010, Liza's 2013 Euros and Caro...
