One week to first ISU GP. So excited, especially in this season (#Sochi14). Who will win Skate America, second and third?
My predictions (hope too):
1- Mao ASADA. Maybe not win short program, but then in free program get the top.
2- Elena RADIONOVA. She will be the surprise in ISU GP, this season, like others olympic seasons who can't go is always medalled.
3- Ashley WAGNER. Good skate, but not enough.
4- Elizaveta TUKTAMYSHEVA. Rough beginning, like always.
5- Mae Berenice MEITE
6- Samantha CESARIO
7- Valentina MARCHEI
8- Viktoria HELGESSON
9- Caroline ZHANG
10- Elene GEDEVANISHVILI
1- Max AARON. I hope he win. Good programs and at home, perfect to get gold.
2- Daisuke TAKAHASHI. The second mark will help him.
3- Takahiko KOZUKA. Good skate, but his free program costume put him in 3rd. lol
4- Tatsuki MACHIDA
5- Denis TEN. I think he will not start well.
6- Jason BROWN
7- Brian JOUBERT. I even think he won't compete.
8- Adam RIPPON
9- Artur GACHINSKI
10- Alexander MAJOROVPairs
1- Tatiana VOLOSOZHAR / Maxim TRANKOV. Easily... They will win everything, fair or not.
2- Kirsten MOORE-TOWERS / Dylan MOSCOVITCH. They will skate very nicely.
3- Caydee DENNEY / John COUGHLIN. Home factor.
4- Stefania BERTON / Ondrej HOTAREK. Nice, some erros, but not enough.
5- Marissa CASTELLI / Simon SHNAPIR
6- Ksenia STOLBOVA / Fedor KLIMOV
7- Felicia ZHANG / Nathan BARTHOLOMAY
8- Margaret PURDY / Michael MARINARO
1- Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE. Easily too, I love them, so great, but Merly dissapoint me with some speeches,
2- Anna CAPPELLINI / Luca LANOTTE. They will start this season very well. I looking forward to watch the news programs.
3- Maia SHIBUTANI / Alex SHIBUTANI. Home factor too.
4- Madison HUBBELL / Zachary DONOHUE
5- Pernelle CARRON / Lloyd JONES
6- Julia ZLOBINA / Alexei SITNIKOV
7- Isabella TOBIAS / Deividas STAGNIUNAS
8- Cathy REED / Chris REED
Ladies and Men will be stuff. Many good skaters. Pairs not easy to predict 2nd, 3rd and 4th places.
