    thanks for posting this.
    i really like polina s. and hope she can deliver this season when it counts.
    unfortunately her pcs werenīt very high again, but letīs see how that will be at the grand prixs.

    i really loved her last years sp, not sure about the new one. but itīs very early.

    OK. I think Morosov has to be credited with some of her success last season. She seemed to have a renewed desire to win which served her well. I know it's blasphemous to credit him with anything, but I do think he has been good for her. I'm not saying she had elegant programs, but she certainly had programs that scored well and she seemed happy with his coaching.

    I have my favorites, but find something to like about all the Russian ladies, be it grace, technical ability or sheer determination.

    her PCS were indeed low, I saw the protocol,
    she scored a total of only 51.+ something on this

    I don't know why she is always scored low especially her SP
    then as someone said here, she has to " mountain climb " at the LP for technical merits not counting her useless PCS scores.

    I don't expect much from her at Skate Canada but I think Shlepen has improved and passed puberty and kept all her jumps, she just needs a physiologist to control her SP phobias, lol

    It's a French song named Les Feuilles mortes (Dead Leaves or Autumn Leaves) and I think this was the original singer of the piece.

    She has a tendency to mess up the SP, so her PCS usually suffers from that. On top of that, let's face it she usually skates through the music (so does Lipnitskaya). I am glad that she skated well here, she looked to be listening to the music while skating, and this was lovely to see. So, overall I think her decision to leave her former coach and join Morosov group was a great one. I hope she will do well this year.

    Perhaps it was just the video angle but she looked deathly slow. That will definitely negatively effect PCS. I hope she has a good season; I like her. This program is very meh to me, but at least her arms aren't flopping around all over the place.

    I don't know how Leonova will fare this year.
    Morozov does have a positive affect on the results of his singles skaters in the first season they are with him and generally the 2nd season is a disappointment as the novelty wears off.( Oda, Rippon, Amodio, Takahashi.The pattern differed with Ando and Ilinykh..but circumstances with those 2 were a bit different)
    I guess that 2014 in Russia may keep his interest in Leonova strong.

    Shelepen-

    Very literal minded costuming, I must say

    May be I am being too hard on her- it's only the beginning of the season- but she seemed slow in the footwork section, and in some of her spins. The sit spin was not low enough, and I did not feel any connection to the music.

    That does not mean she won't do much better in Feb/March.

    yeah slow footwork especially after the middle of the program
    though I think her spins have improved form last seasons

    to be honest, andos second year under him was very unpleasant, too.

    the samson&delilah-short (which i actually liked) was thrown away, after she didnīt have best scores at grand prix and most of us will remember her carmen-ending in gothenburg ath worlds. her only succesful performance was at nationals this season.

    wisely, they changed the awful giselle-program the year after, this could have been the complete knockout for her. but however, he got her strong again she had some really great programs imo (memoirs of a geisha sp, cleopatra fs, mission-sp).

    BTW Shelepen's SP is choreographed by Tarasova. And yes, she's definetely in Sokolovskaya's group now, because Vodorezova refused to take her (she wants to focus on Adelina).

    not sure what to think of this music, strange music cuts and and strange gestures and choreo at the beginning.

    like her with open hair, was a performance to build on in the season

    I was so happy when she announced her music but now I'm quite disappointed.
    The music cut is weird, the dress is not so pretty and the choreography not related to the theme.
    Last year Orford Williams did, IMO, a better job with Gone with the Wind

    GWTW + 2 additional pieces that seem kind of random + GWTW...


    I don't get the resurgence in popularity of GWTW to begin with, but these music cuts are strange.
