How the judges would have ranked them all skating against each other I believe:

1. Irina Slutskaya 2005
2. Yu Na Kim 2009 (toss up with Slutskaya 05 with judges)
3. Kwan 2000
4. Kwan 2001
5. Arakawa 2004
6. Slutskaya 2002
7. Ando 2007
8. Kwan 2003
9. Meissner 2006
10. Ando 2008


How I personally would have ranked them competing against each other:

1. Kwan 2000
2. Arakawa 2004 (had a hard time deciding between this and Kwan 00)
3. Slutskaya 2005
4. Kwan 2001
5. Kim 2009
6. Ando 2007 (only because of the difficulty and strength of the jumping)
7. Kwan 2003
8. Slutskaya 2002
9. Meissner 2006
10. Asada 2008

I hate to rank any of them last since they are all very good.

1.Irina 2005- Queen of spades (awesome 3lutz3loop and 3sal3loop to start off, and incredible energy throughout)

She did not do a 3sal/3loop.

My rankings:
1. 2004 Arakawa: This performance was ground-breaking! She set new technical standards with a 3lz-3toe-2loop and 3flip-3toe in the same program, and had created a superior artistic impact with Turandot. Her best performance ever!
2. 2003 Kwan: Her Worlds performance was a joy, considering how much pressure and pain she suffered the year before. I only placed it second, in my opinion behind Arakawa's, because her technical content wasn't nearly as high.
3. 2005 Slutskaya: A very inspiring performance after her struggles with sickness (and with her mother's), and a 3lz-3loop as well! In terms of PCS/presentation it wasn't as great as some of the other performances, but it was definitely a great program to watch.
4. 2001 Kwan: Another great program with Kwan - she handled the pressure tremendously well, considering she wasn't the favorite
5. 2000 Kwan
6. 2007 Ando: A solid performance, but it wasn't phenomenal, which was why it only placed 2nd for the freeskate. But her reaction afterwards was priceless, one of my favorite moments :respec:
7. 2002 Slutskaya: A clean program, but a bit conservative and not nearly as much impact as her 2005 winning performance
8. 2008 Asada: She skated wonderfully, but she did have a fall in the beginning
9. 2006 Meissner: Clean program with triple-triples, but the rest of her program just wasn't as impressive, though she received a great reaction
10. 2009 Kim: I can't believe I put this record-breaking performance at the end :lol: But I didn't think her program for this year was that great - it was kind of flat and didn't catch my attention, and she even popped a jump. Not to mention, she skated to Scheherzade:shuffle:[/QUOTE]

This is haaaaaard. I don't know whether it's better to rank them based on how I felt when I originally saw them, or how I feel watching them again now.

So, I'll do both :P

How I felt at the time watching them in terms of joy of watching:
1. Irina Slutskaya, Queen of Spades
2. Shizuka Arakwaka
3. Miki Ando
4. Yuna Kim
*big gap*
5. Mao Asada
6. Irina Slutskaya, Tosca
7. Kimmie Meissner
8. Michelle Kwan, Red Violin
9. Kwan, Song of the Black Swan
*big gap*
10. Kwan, Aranjuez (sorry, I hated this program)

Watching them now though through the filter of time and with less emotion, I'd rank them:
1. Shizuka Arakawa
*big gap*
2. Yuna Kim
3. Michelle Kwan, Song of the Black Swan
4. Mao Asada (yes, she fell twice, but the last three minutes of that program was beyond amazing)
5. Michelle Kwan, Red Violen
6. Irina Slutskaya, Queen of Spades
7. Irina Slutskaya, Tosca
8. Miki Ando
*big gap*
9. Kimmie Meissner
10. Kwan, Aranjuez (I still hate this program as it turns out)

10. Kimmie Meissner 2006 - I've just never cared for her skating, what can I say..

1) Arakawa 2004 - While I enjoyed Michelle Kwan's more, I had to put this one first because of the jumps.

2) Kwan 2003 - This one was better than 01 or 00.. I think it was skated with more passion?

3) Slutskaya 2005 - While I didn't enjoy re-watching this program, which is weird because Irina used to be my favourite in her day, the technical content was superb.

4) Kwan 2001

5) Kwan 2000

6) Kim 2009 - It was a breathtaking performance, better than her 2010 Olympics one in terms of artistry and passion, I think, but with that single I couldn't put it any higher than this

7) Ando 2007 - Great technical content, but skated so cautiously and like the commentator said, she didn't seem in control at all times.

8) Slutskaya 2002 - This one just didn't have as much technical content as the others, and wasn't that interesting

9) Asada 2008 - I don't remember seeing this before, which is weird because I thought I watched the entire Worlds in 2008. Anyway, I was really unimpressed, and I actually like Mao. I had to put this one last, because of the splat at the beginning (how can you compare that to the others, which had nary a slip?) and because I honestly thought it was boring and uninspired.

This is tough because really, there were no BAD performances! :) So I’m just ranking based on my personal impression and how they rated on my “wow meter”:

1) Kwan 2000 – I just loved this performance, she skated with attack and passion, and I love that she dug her way out of third place to win this title. WOWZERS!

2) Kwan 2001 – Loved this one too, and another “come from behind” victory. WOWIE WOW!

3) Arakawa 2004 – Just sensational, the two triple-triples were great, and of course she has fabulous speed and power. WOW WOW!

4) Slutskaya 2005 – Great technical content, coupled with the amazing comeback story = WOW! Music was a little cheesy, but at least it wasn’t overused, and I’ll always associate it with Irina. Somehow I didn’t mind the card-dealing…

5) Kim 2009 – Gorgeous triple triple in the beginning was WOW! The rest was good, but not an out-and-out WOW. Also, Sheherazade is so played out.

6) Meissner 2006 – Great technical effort for this youngster in her first Worlds appearance, and although I was rooting for Sasha here, I loved how Kimmie took advantage. The 3-3s were great, and the 2A-2T-2T at the very end gave this a wow! tempered by need to work on spirals and presentation.

7) Ando 2007 - Great technical content, but this stroke-jump, stroke-jump performance put me to sleep. Still, a very solid effort. Putting her ahead of Kwan 2003 based on 3-3 and non-hackneyed music.

8) Kwan 2003 – It was good but only six triples and no 3-3s reduced the wow factor for me. Also, the Aranjuez music was so overdone by then; I preferred how she left her mark with RV and SOTBS, which I consider “her” music…

9) Asada 2008 – The giant splat took me out of it, but good on her to fight her way through.

10) Slutskaya 2002 – Sort of blah, especially with no 3-3. She got the job done, but no real wow factor for me. I would have had Kwan ahead on the free.
