Of course they are under pressure. Just ask Ashley who was a favorite to make the team in 2010 after making the GPF the month before Nationals but one mistake basically destroyed her hopes. And Gracie can't afford another terrible SP like last season at Nationals or it might be all over for her too. They still have to skate well and land jumps. Easier said then done when everything is riding on it.
