    2011 Japan Open

    Just wondering if anybody has heard anything about the event (or even if there is one)

    I usually like their selection of skaters

    Joannie is invited, too. But the tone of the icenetwork article is rather cautious.

    I have a feeling that they are not sure yet if Japan Open will be held this year.

    Skaters announced.
    http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/japanopen2...il.html#player

    JAPAN
    Ando
    Suzuki
    Kozuka
    Takahashi

    N.AMERICA
    Czisny
    Rochette
    Chan
    Buttle

    EUROPE
    Korpi
    Meier
    Plushenko
    Gachinski

    I'm very much confused. Asada must have declined. Don't know why.
    Chan invited! Another surprise. He's not my favorite though.
    Plushenko and Gachinski, nice. Plus Tuktamisheva would be better.
    I wanted Hanyu instead of the old man.

    NMURA, we posted at the same time!

    Personally, I hoped that Michal Březina would be there,
    since he tweeted that he so wanted to skate in Japan and show his Kodo program...

    And these are skaters for Carnival on Ice, which takes place after Japan Open:

    It sounds like more skaters might be added later.

    In past two years, Asada's performances at Japan Open were fiascoes, and the whole grand prix seasons have ended in disaster. Avoiding the "jinx" is one reason I can think of. If so, she could be more "serious" for the new season's start.

    But why Suzuki? Murakami should be favored before her, isn't it?

    Hanyu is invited to Carnival on Ice. He's going to perform at all off-season shows in Japan. I can understand he needs to earn money but doing shows will be a good training for him.

    My 3 hopes:
    I hope Suzuki proves that she's still got a few more years in her. XD
    I hope Jeff Buttle shines with excellence like he used to.
    I hope everyone skates magnificently

    Why Gachinski? Maybe I just need to warm up to him...

    again, i'm very pleased with their selection of skaters. if only time past faster...

    which team do you guys think will win?
