Right, she seemed to hesitate straight from the take-off of the 3A. I don't think Liza is a threat to her after the FP even with a 3A, Aliona with a perfect skate and a 3A though, who knows how the judges might feel about that.seems they were a bit conservative with Aliona today. too bad Sasha couldn't pull the 3A off today, she will get there. it was like she wanted to pop it immediately after getting in the air and commit too late. i didn't think they'd put her that far behind liza.
I would say it's the music... I definitely like Aliona's performance here more than Sasha's, although B.E's music in really not my cup-o-tea.
