Loena: Unusual music cut/mix, but it showed off her interpretation nicely. Earned her PCS

Eva-Lotta: the slo-mo showed very clean technique on jumps. I see great GOE potential for her
I liked very much what Eva-Lotta showed, but tbh. her connection to the music could have been a bit more sensual. For Rachmaninov it was not quite enough. She could improve there too.

Looking at your user name, I want to ask: Did I in fact see very clean edges on both Lutz and Flip? That would be exceptional these days.
On interpretation, I do not disagree, but I hope it may have been down to a bit of fatigue with room to develop. I have enjoyed her expression more on other performances.

Well, for a skater the Rach 2 adagio is surely not the easiest music to interpret. I'm not sure if she was fatigued or rather focused to get the tech right. Regarding my nickname, it's meant satirically and I'm actually not much of a tech purist, but I checked the video and her edges seemed fine indeed. However, I would have preferred her to flutz the lutz rather than pop the axel.

Congrats to Loena! She's definitely back. Now she just needs to stay uninjured and healthy for the rest of this strange season...

A shame that Ivett doesn't seem to be over her injury yet, but all the respect for her guts and determination in getting her program out anyway.

I have rewatched the ladies event, and so many lovely performance in the last group. I´m sad Dasa again missed the minimum for WC in the FS, but she made too many small mistakes. But it was the first comp and she looked ok with the result. And she was top 5! Interesting program as well.

I also wished Ivett would do better, but if she has a injury she was really brave. And I liked the FS very much!

Watching Eva-Lottas performance was really great, she floats over the ice and she has really become a better performer. Small mistakes, but she didn´t let it get in the way of the program.

Loenas FS was such a nice surprise. I wasn´t really fond of the choice of Fever, but this version and the choreo was really cool - and this could easily be one of my favourite program this season. The FS wasn´t as error-free as the SP, but she can be very proud of what she achieved and it was so nice that she got the last spot for IdF!
