I don't think Ando will be trying 4salchow again, I don't think she even practiced it much - if at all - last season.

Although with the rules changes, maybe she resumed it again.

You should totally revive it once Suguri, Suzuki, Imai, Machida, Takahashi and Mura end up making the Worlds team. :D

I'm not sold on Murakami yet, but Ando will definitely get a spot.
1. 4S<
2. 3Lz-3L<
3. Back loading of 5 jumping passes
IMO, Asada doesn't stand a chance.

Why do you keep bringing up the 4S?

:huh:

And yet they let Lepisto on the podium.
She was pretty lackluster all season. She only seemed good because the other top skaters were struggling quite a bit. Once the others got their form back by Olympics, Miki was overshadowed again. Anyways, she might get on the podium, but I don't think she's going to win barring a meltdown from others.

That was because Miki bombed the SP, she beat Lepisto by 7 points in the FS.

I'm not so sure about this. With Joannie likely not there, Yuna competing for the 1st time this season, only one of Akiko or Murakami and 2 Americans there, if Mao is still imploding, it looks like Ando or Kostner have a good shot at the title, and Miki's chances are improved even more if Laura and Carolina are still being hampered by injuries.

Well isn't that the same as everyone either being absent or having a meltdown? ;) Even if Yuna's not her best, I still she has to screw up pretty bad for either Ando or Kostner to get the title.

I'd be thrilled to see Miki bring back the quad salchow. Her attempt at 2008 GPF under the current rules for downgrades would have still have given the attempt more credit than a 3lutz! If Miki can even do a cheated quad then it would be like having an extra 3lutz in her program.

I think it's too risky.

Don't downgrades need to have negative GOE now (unlike in the past season when judges were not told whether a jump was downgraded or not)? So in effect, a cheated salchow might not completely be beneficial.

Maybe...I'll say this, I think Miki has a great chance to MEDAL at Worlds this season, Kostner too if she's doing 3f and 3lz by then. Gold maybe isn't so likely for either, but a medal definitely. I feel like Suzuki doesn't really have a great shot at even winning a medal.

I think Kanako will have a chance to go to world, but only if JSF decide not to sent Mao(if is not likely to happen).

For Hanyu with his underscore PSC, he will not be able to make world team.

Machida might have a chance , but I still think JSF is going to let him wait for another year, regradless of his performance.:yawn:

Let hope the one with best performance will be sent to world not the one with higher seniority or reputation.

After all the hype about her I was very disappointed when I saw Suzuki last season. I think she is good but nothing really special. I certainly don't see her as being anywhere near certain to make the world team, and personally I'd like to see someone else make it.

Agreed. She is overrated. People just like the underdog story. At her best she is just solid and at her worst she can be a disaester.

What I'm wondering is if Asada tanks again at her next GP event and does the same at Nationals, what will the JPN federation do? Could it be like 2005 when Fumie had to defeat Yoshie at 4CC for a spot on the World team? What :drama: that would be!

Why are you even entertaining such gloomy thoughts? :drama:
