I never get nervous for Nathan. He’s very calming.Depends on the skater but usually yes! Rika’s my fave which was very stressful during her first senior season...thank god she’s gotten better at hitting her short program!
Wakaba, Mana, and Liza are also stressful with their triple axels. Jason always has me holding me breath for his free. And for US Nationals I’m nervous for Alysa (I just want her to skate well!), Audrey Shin (she had such a great debut at Skate America and I really hope she can deliver again!) and Amber (HIT THAT TRIPLE AXEL!).
On the other hand I’m hardly ever nervous for Nathan, Yuzuru, or Papadakis/Cizeron, though it helps that I don’t know enough about the technical side of Ice Dance to be worried and that Nathan and Yuzuru are head and shoulders about the other guys right now.
I wish it was the same for me ! The first time I watched Sasha live was last year's RusNats And since then everytime I watched her live she had troubles, so I became convinced that my nervousness watching her somehow travelled from France to wherever she was skating ^^' After Rostelecom I definitely got paranoid and decided not to watch RusNats live, and well, she skated clean so that seals it for meIf I can, I like to catch the livestream as it's happening, because some part of me clearly believes I can will the skaters to stay on their feet and land every jump.
I feel this way about T/M! I especially hid at work to watch their Olympics free skate and when the score popped up I started crying right with Zhenya Tso I became convinced that my nervousness watching her somehow travelled from France to wherever she was skating
