With Asada not doing the GP, Julia is the #1 seed and she will pick the two events she wants. USFS is not in the drivers seat on that one. Anyway, Julia skated against Gracie last year at Skate Canada. Julia won, Suzuki was 2nd and Gracie (pre-Carroll) was 3rd.

Sasha didn't begin to compete internationally until she was 16; she wasn't successful in her first season on the GP, and didn't win her first GP medal until she was 17. She had her own struggles as a young skater, failing to medal at JW. She no doubt went through her own battle with the puberty bug, even small as she was. Sasha was flatchested, but she did have normal female hips (which Julia does not have as yet).

Also note that Julia is quite a bit taller than Sasha was at the same age. Sasha wasn't quite 5' tall in her early years (15-16), while Julia is already 5'2". So the comparison to Sasha doesn't quite fit.
