    I feel sorry for Denis--but I'm impressed he's even skating here, considering the infection he had. When he's fully recovered, he'll be in the mix.

    I guess he is still not 100%... his score is not going to be very good.

    Isn't he injured or something and he also has some kind of infection...?? Maybe he shouldn't have recovered first to prevent worse injury....

    Yes, considering the circumstances, I think he did really well. He's not my cup of tea, but hopefully he'll be back full force at Euros

    Only time will tell whether Worlds 2012 was his moment to shine or whether it will be repeated.
    Denis Ten has all the goods as a skater. I remember him as a very young man peforming wonderfully at the vancouver Olys. However, he has never a consistent skater over the years. His silver medal will also put pressure on him to perform. Kozuka with all his skill and quality of skating has never been able to repeat his podium finish either. So who really knows about Ten.....

    Ten has a Lori Nichol program and she knows how to work the system when it comes to PCS.

    The Cup of China always has that Skycam obsession with showing spins from above. They also broadcast all the wrong things in the montage of the skaters' programs while we are waiting for marks.

    I wish the ISU had a camera crew protocol for senior events...

    That's not the only thing that should be scored though. It was really visible that he wasn't at his best, he looked kind of disconnected and slow. Given his injury it was a great effort, but it still should be reflected in the scores...

    Han really should have had the highest PCS of the night, followed by Kozuka. They are pretty close on PCS though, so it's not that big a deal.

    At least the chinese audience got some redemption. Except Yan, all their other skaters ended up on the last places today.

    Well this was a bit of sad mess. Not a single performance which would show the whole package.

    Tell this to the Chinese skaters all of whom had bland programs, which didn't highlight their strong points at all.

    Ten's program had a very impressive straight line step sequence but was quite empty until that point.
