Imagine that there is no such pair as V/T. Back in 2010, after the Olympics both Max and Tanya have to make a choice who to skate with. What do you think, is it a good thing, after all, that they are a pair or not? Does not Maxim somehow pull Tanya's personality back? She has never fufilled her potencial with him and she is capable of a lot of things.
I wish Tanya was "the star" of the pair. What kind of partner suits her the most? I wonder what would have been if she was paired with, f.e., Eric Radford)) I have a feeling that he is a stronger skater in his pair. Would Eric and Tanya get such scores as V/T now?

P.S. - Don't start a nationality, federation blah-blah arguement
