    Its Official -- Sasha/Robin Split

    According to www.sashacohen.com, Sasha is returning to John Nicks and California, and will no longer be coached by Robin Wagner. Hopefully, the sunshine will help her back to heal.

    She never should have left him to begin with. I think this will only help her for the long term. If for some reason this doesn't work, it could mean the end of her competitive career. She needs to buckle down and listen to him.

    I'm still reeling from this. I expected a split from Robin-the lack of communication between the two as of late was obvious but all the way back to California? I hope this is the last split, Cohen needs to stop switching coaches. I think along with the stamina issue goes with the problem of trying to conform to a coach's training methods every 18 months or so.

    I think its a good move. Based on what she said in her journal, she wasnt happy back east. Being unhappy hurts your performence. I dont think this is a move away from Robin as much as its a move back to her roots and back to where she feels happy. Who are we to judge her for trying to be happy?

    "I've had it to here with these blasted New England liberals! I'm going back to the one red area of California and doing what I should've been doing for the last two years! Arguing with Mr. Nicks and going on massive shopping sprees with Tiffany Stiegler!"
    She didn't really say that. I'm just being a stinker.

    There's a fabulous condo in Manhattan for sale now!! Since the owners must move, the price is negotiable in the buyer's favor.

    As for Sasha. It's her life, and so close to Nats. She'll be fine.

    I too am glad she is back with Mr. Nicks. I always thought that was a good match-up for her in the first place........42

    I disagree. Sasha trains very hard, whereas Nicole was known for her lack of discipline and being somewhat of a bad girl, partier, etc.

    I think she had more spark/ fire when she was with Mr. Nicks. May she regain some of that now. There's no place like home....

    So I'm betting her family will remain in the east coast? It's time for her to move on her own!

    Oh I think her family will move with her. Her father's business is in California not on the east coast. That could be one of the reasons for the coaching switch. I also think being homesick affected her more than she could have ever imagined. And I don't think she got the results she thought she would get with either TT or Robin. I think she had some fire with Nicks, but she did with TT as well. But I never did like Nicks as her coach. I think that was more because Sasha kept changing her programs when she skated. Now that she's two years older and more mature, he may be good for her.

    I just wish her the best and hope to see her on the podium at Nationals.

    Well, I guess there's no use voting in the "How should Sasha decorate her New York apartment?" poll

    She might be thinking of a couple of weeks of Arutunian coaching before Worlds.

    What a shocker...NOT! Very Bobek like indeed.
    I have a feeling Sasha was too much of a diva for Robin. They didn't connect in the Kiss n Cry and Marshall's.
    Message to Robin: SARAH!

    I am just shocked. WOW. Even though they've known each other for years there will be a readjustment period like with all other moving around. Now, the question is will she be with Mr. Nicks even after Nationals? She didn't exactly say permanent more like up to Nats on mid January or something like that.

    Good luck to her. I'm sure she'll be more happier in California
