Tutberidze has an advantage that Lipnitskaya was a year ahead, so she is slightly ahead of Radionova. But if you compare first semi-senior season of Julia and Elena, both of them placed 2nd and 3rd at their first senior GP events, they both got to GPF, Julia had to withdraw for injuries whereas Elena ended up 4th. That's pretty comparable. Julia would not do any better last season than 4th at the GPF. But it is Elena who managed to get two Junior worlds titles at 2 junior world attendances, whereas Julia managed it only once. Julia benefited from having the chance of competing at Olympics, whereas Elena would not be ready this season (same as Julia was not quite ready the last season), but if Elena had the opportunity to attend Olympics this coming season, she might do as well as Julia did. Besides, until now Julia still benefited from being older, but from this or maximum next season that should not play any role anymore.
