If Julia skates as clean as she did in Finland, only Akiko has chances to beat her but she as well needs to skate without mistakes. Julia was absolutely fantastic in Finlandia Trophy, so much more mature and having better artistic skills than before. I wasn't a fan of hers before but when I saw her in FT I was very impressed!! I like Julia's new long programme, it suits her perfectly.
