    Why doesn't Elena Glebova have any GP(s) yet?

    I was wondering this,

    Why Elena Glebova don't have any GP yet ?

    She was 16th after all at the 2013 worlds championships, and someone like Natalia Popova who finish 15th gets 2 grand prix and Valentina Marchei who finish 18th gets also 2 grand prix, this doesn't make sense

    I like her new FS cleopatra, she interprets it so well and the music cut is great for her skating style

    I'm surprised that she dont' have any Grand Prix.

    Do you think that she deserve at least one GP ?

    She didn't finish top 12 at Worlds, she wasn't in the top 24 on the ISU World Standings List, or in the top 24 on on the Seasons Best Scores list. So she didn't get any initial invitations to the GP.

    Vacancies (withdrawals) from the GP are filled from the Seasons Best list. Elena Glebova was #37 on that list.

    Here are the eligible ladies on the list that have received invitations so far:
    27 157.72 Haruka IMAI - has one, is eligible to get another
    27 157.72 Samantha CESARIO now has two
    31 155.52 Natalia POPOVA now has two
    32 155.49 Kexin ZHANG has one, is eligible to get another
    33 155.08 Amelie LACOSTE now has two
    34 154.41 Nikol GOSVIANI has one, is eligible to get another
    35 153.77 Courtney HICKS has one, is eligible to get another
    36 153.32 Polina KOROBEYNIKOVA has one, is eligible to get another
    37 152.49 Elena GLEBOVA has none

    So Elena could still get a GP assignment.
