    I think Mao is actually skating at Worlds? I think I read somewhere that she will end her career there. Kinda makes sense since it will be in front of her home crowd.

    My guess.

    1) Mao
    2) Yulia
    3) Gracie

    1) Mao!
    2) Gracie
    ok I know this will be controversial, but I actually pick Ashley (third) over Lipniskaya and Murakami.

    Adelina will pull out before the worlds. It's inevitable.

    Clean Mao will beat Adelina in Japan by 20 points or more. Adelina will see a backlash for the Olympic fiasco if she dares to show up at Worlds in Japan and probably not even medal unless she is perfect.

    Although this is most likely.

    The thing is...if the insane inflation from the Olympics doesn't go away by Worlds then Mao would have no chance to win even if she skates completely clean. Julia beat Mao's 8 triples 1 3A FS in PCS with 2 falls...

    1. Adelina
    2. Julia
    3. Akiko

    Olympics arent in Russia. The Japanese fed. will be waiting for Fraudnitkova (which is probably why she wont show) and she will have to face the music of a skating world that now views her as an utter joke and she would have to face a far superior and talented skater than she will ever be in her home country.

    In Japan, probably Sotnikova's olympic skates would be only a few points higher than Asada. Lipnitskaya is about 18 points lower. The Home advantage is unwritten rule in this sport. I'm not going to defend that though, the Russians should worry about beating Murakami. She will have more "push" than 4CC in Taiwan.

    Asada SP 58 + FS 148 = 206
    Sotnikova SP 70 + FS 138 = 208
    Lipnitskaya SP 62 + FS 126 = 188

    We'll see whether home advantage or reputation advantage will win in a month, shall we?

    You can remember Wagner two years ago after "winning" 4CC in Colorado. In case of Lipnitskaya, her "reputation" is definitely down after the Olympics.
