Wagner. This girl have a lot of energy and speed. And she is simply beautie
I like Kristina Gao style rhis season. Cant waite to see her on TV. Will she skate in GP?
Rachael is quite consistent with the jumps (except Worlds when she was burnt out).
Flatt. Her skating is a bit flat...coincidentally...but she's definitely the next best as far as scoring and abilities/consistency go. I'm not talking "favorites", just how the chips fall.
I thought that Rachael's LP at SA last yr was close to great.
She really isn't "my kind of skater", but I always find myself rooting for her; quite possibly because I find her so likeable.
Having seen it in person, I supremely enjoyed Rachael's LP at Skate America last year. She definitely doesn't seem to have the same oomph in her performances when I watch them on TV or online, but I still think she's far better than most people give her credit for.
I think she gets due credit from the judges, since they see her live. But apparently she's just not "telegenic", so a lot of fans aren't as impressed.

Well, as a fan of Rachael I can say that I thoroughly enjoy her skating. I'll admit that she certainly is not the most graceful or engaging skater there is, but I admire her athleticism, determination, and the joy she radiates while she is performing. It wouldn't really be fair to generalize all skating fans as unimpressed.
