Julia's jumps today in the SP: 3Lz, 3F, 2A (it was planned like this for today, since she has a small injury)
Polina Shelepen jumped 3Lz+3T, 3F fall, 2A
No information about others.
Alena Leonova and Anna Shershak didn't skate today.
Tomorrow is the LP.

Which one was done in combination? 3L or 3f? was it a 3-2t combination or a 3-2R?

I think trkm7778 meant that there was no combination, planned to work around her injury.

Yes, there was no combination, planned to work around her inury. The combination planned later for the season is 3Lz+3T. After the test skates Julia would prefer to have a little rest (2–3 days) to speed up the recovery and not to participate in open skates (unless the federation would insist that she does so). She doesn't want to speed up things at the beginning of the season: she prefers to calmly pace her preparation for her first GP (source: her sprashivai.ru)
BTW the choreographer of her programms this season is her coach – Eteri Tutberidze and NOT Morozov.

More from yesterday:

Sotnikova: did everything well except a triple-single combo (no idea what the combo was), impressed everyone still.
Menshov: 4t-3t and 3A, cleanly done.

Info on Polina K. didn't seem too positive but it is still early in the season.

I really hope Sotnikova is over her senior debut nerves and skates up to her talent this season. I'm looking forward to the Russian ladies and pairs this season.

^Yeah, I think she was also correcting her lutz technique which looked better during The Ice show she did in Japan recently.

What is the music Sotnikova skated to?

I have a feeling Tukt will be the one to struggle this season and she also filled out a bit, I hope Sotnikova comes back strong this Season after a Hit/Miss last season

The "open test skates" will take place in about three weeks. Hopefully she will be fully recovered by then and appear.
When I visited Julia's training group in May Eteri Tutberidze told me that Julia didn't like Nikolai Morozov's choice for the short program and therefore she made a new one to Julia's chosen music ("Sabre Dance").

at least the kid is smart at an early age she saw how horrible most of Morozov's programs/choreographies are.. :P

Good for her for standing up for herself and not just skating to his crap if she didn't like it.

LP from yesterday: Sotnikova did a 3Lz+3T, Shelepen did 3Lz+3Lo (but not everything was clean afterwards in Polina's case). Julia skated without combos (planned so), but had to skate last, because she forgot the music CD and needed to search for it everywhere :) From today Julia has the promised rest until Monday completely without training to help the micro-injury heal well.
As for Biryukova and Korobeynikova – reports say they were both quite nervous.

Supposedly minor injuries to Liza T. (heel, she's not there) .

Liza cancelled the ice show "Fantasy on Ice 2012" to be held on 1st September in Japan due to "an injury to a ligament in her right knee".
The announcement also says she will reqire two weeks of treatment and rest.

I hope this is just a minor injury.

Liza's first competition in GP is Skate Canada right :wuzrobbed:
I hope she still has plenty of time to heal fully and refine her skating by the the coming month
