    Sinitsina/Zhiganshin were fast, confident and attacked the program well but I found the choreography quite generic.

    S/Z are so likeable! It seemed like they started with even more energy than usual, as if to tell the judges "pick us! we're a top team, even if we have to skate so early!"
    ... made me a little worried that they'd push too hard...
    and i did notice 2 little stumbles - 1 from her just before the music switch, and later a little imperfection of him...
    Still a good SD!

    Alessandrini/Vaturi really didn't seem to have improved much and they've been competing in seniors for a while now. Their edges were quite shallow.

    They were really lucky to get a 'skating late PCS boost' because this should have been beaten by the Finns.

    S/Z are my favourite russian couple, why are they skating in this group? Is it something related to world ranking? I still don't understand how they make the groups, apart from the drawing

    Poor Dun. Freaky fall on transitions and then lost focus and missed a few steps on the step sequence. Ouch!

    Their world standing is not high enough for them to be in later groups, as they only did one GP and didn't do any B internationals for extra points.

    They were 1 place off being in the top 2 groups!

    Thank you! It was the only reasonable explanation

    According to world ranking.

    No world ranking = skating first
    Lowest world ranking = first two groups
    Higher world ranking = following two groups
    Higher world ranking = following two groups
    and so it goes

    Heekin-Canedy Dun - 12th last year, not in the FD this year
    Mysliveckova/Brown - 14th last year, not in the FD this year

    Thanks to IJS, you have to deliver on the night. 'Reputation' won't hold you up any more (at least not like it used to).

    Shtork/Rand had a fun program but she's just so wooden and they don't have the speed, power and flow to contend at the highest level, IMO. I'd have that outside top 20, sorry.

    (I guess there's something I am clearly not seeing, given they just got their new PB and placed really well )
