I took Sylvia's advice from this (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3472909&postcount=120) post.

Just curious, but what's the difference between "no way!" and "she doesn't stand a chance"?

I think that all four girls will have a good shot at the title and medals.

I think that one area that Lipnitskaia has the advantage is consistency and spins. Her spins get her tons of GOE, as they should. Gracie has good jumps, but I think that overall, the Russian girls are better in the PCS department. Gracie's programs are rather empty and her posture is not great. Julia is extremely polished and is emoting better; Adelina has fabulous SS and good musicality and LIza is a great performer. I also think that the Russians have a bit more in transitions. Also, the Russians have more international experience on their side. Gracie has the highest base value in the SP, though (in terms of jumps). In the LP, I think it all evens out.\

I think whoever skates cleanest will win.

"NO WAY!" is for Gracie haterz.

"She doesn't stand a chance." is for normal people who think she doesn't have a chance.

I can't wait for the poll in March that will be titled, "Where would Gracie have finished at Senior Worlds?"

Should we start it now or wait until after the competition? ;)

I'm just excited there are so many new faces on the international scene.

I voted for "It's going to be really really close between all four of them" but I wouldn't actually bet money on that. At least one of them might bomb. I just wouldn't predict which.

Good post. Out of all the skaters expected to compete at JW, I think Lipnitskaia is the strongest overall skater for the reasons you stated.

I think it's going to be close. Gracie is amazing but she still has a ways to go in refinement, etc.
