    Big surprise, the Russian Men flopped again. Hopefully the ladies can salvage a 2nd place, at least.

    Dunno, the FS actually seemed ok - they pretty much did maybe not their best, but surely some good skate for them...
    Ladies and pairs can deffo salvage 2nd place =D

    If FS for ladies and pairs go exactly the same way as the sp, team russia will have a 7 points advantage over the japanese, and this is definitely doable.
    1st place quite unlikely, unless american ladies meltdown.

    I am more positive toward our team and would state that Russia's winning over USA although hard is still much more likely than losing to Japan.

    I think its possible to win over USA, but not very likely... So i rather expect a 2nd place which is still cool and less disapointment chances hehe

    If only Sergei and Maxim were just slightly better in the SP, it would've been a win. *sigh* They were finally, finally fielding a strong team...

    Russia can tie for first if Liza and Elena go 1-2 and Miyahara beats either of the American ladies.

    That's actually a realistic possibility if you look at the season as a whole and how things ended at Worlds, but I doubt it will play out exactly that way at WTT.

    Never thought I'd root for a Japanese lady (not named Mao Asada) over Ashley Wagner, but now I kinda do.

    I don't think even Satoko can save Team Russia now...

    Sergei flopped with a season's best score? Not to belabor the point, but why do so many people on here constantly lump the "Russian men" together as if they are one person? I see nothing similar about them except their nationality.

    In that case, I take back what I said and fall back to my original predictions... top 3 will be two Russians and Gracie Gold.

    This is WTT, everyone is getting SB scores.

    I would imagine I am lumping the Russians together because this is a team event and a team Russia thread, not an individual skater's event.

    In the case of the LP, I agree. The men didn't flop, especially Sergei (Kovtun made more errors but I wouldn't call it a flop). The SP placements did them in though. As did K/S's placements in pairs (I love them, but it's the truth).

    At this rate, Russia has more of a chance to lose to Japan than they do of winning against the US. I just hope for good skates from the girls, nevermind the team standings.

    Because aside from jumps it doesn't seem like they focus on excelling in any other area. But why they get bad pcs is for two totally different reasons. Kovtun has no choreo or programs and being generous and not repeating slurs i will say voronov is exhibitiony far far too much.

    Better than I expected going into today's events! 1 point out of first place! I blame Pairs, although looking at the overall scoring across disciplines, the men were the weakest link.
