    TEB against Julia Lipnitskaya will be a good test for Ashley Wagner, to see where her PCS are !

    They'll be way above Lipnitskaya's......that's for certain. They are not comparable

    Depending on how the judges feeling like judging, Ashley will probably be in the 60+ range for PCS in the LP barring some disaster skate from her.

    Wagner will have even less competition in TEB, so I hope she would go for the 3flip3toe and 2axel3toe.

    Ashley is the kind of competitor who pushes herself and going against Julia is motivation for her to come out swinging. It's a given that Ashley will beat Julia in PCS in both segements but the showdown will be in the TES. If Ashley adds a 3-3 (any kind really) and that 2A-3T to the LP on top of skating cleanly, there will be no competition. Ashley's transitions, speed, height, running edges and attack make her jumps much more impressive than Julia's jumps, which are harder but lack height, attack, flow and transitions.
