but it really comes down to who has a bad day and who doesn't. all three of them have to seriously bring it because they all are capable of achieving high scores, but if all of them were to skate clean, i think yuna would still win because she is the favorite and IMO her jumps are the best and have the most depth, but second would be really close. mao and carolina both have wonderful longs this year. i can't even decide.
