Anais Morand is only about 1.54 - 1.57 cm and Sergejeva is about 1.68 so
Anais is much smaller

Anais is *tiny* (listed as being 153 cm, 5 ft) and Sergejeva is close to 170 cm, so yeah, definitely not the same size! :lol:

My interest in pairs has just decreased by 95%...for only the shallowest of reasons of course.

The remaining 5% is for Jeremy Barrett's butt.

Thats a tough choice for Anais/Ilia re the citizenship requirements. Hope it works out though.

Rumour about Ilja Glebov confirmed. And also it's written there that this season Anais will try to compete in singles too. Her programs will be choreographed by Paul Sonderegger, Salomé Brunner and Stéphane Lambiel:

I really hope she'll succeed as a single skater :)
Great that she can skate with Glebov but the citizenship issue is a bit of a problem.

I wonder how many triples she has? Switzerland has only two places for ladies? Is this realistic for her to be in Bern?
Wishing her lots of luck anyway!
And hope to see her programs, especially the one choreographed by some "brand new" choreographer. :)

She was very successful as a single before she started skating with Antoine in 2004.

Also, the promising 12-year-old Swiss Junior ladies champion, Alisson Perticheto, is too young even for the JGP this season.

After Sarah retires (I still hope we'll see her this season) would be great to have for Switzerland someone with "general talent, artistry and all that stuff". :) Because to tell the truth I wasn't impressed by other ladies at Swiss Nationals.
And if Anais has a real chance to be in Bern, then all this situation is really exciting.

Well, they still have older girls with triples in Switzerland.

I agree. In terms of basic skating skills, I thought Noémie Silberer was the only other current Swiss lady who came close to Anais's abilities and she's now retired. Besides, Ms. Morand seems to be a solid competitor which is what I think most of the other Swiss girls seem to be lacking --competitive instinct. I'd love to see this work out for her! It would be nice to have someone be competitive internationally in both singles and pairs again.
