    Yu Na 's sp is twice as exciting as anything I saw from the GPF.

    Unlike Plushenko, Lysacek and Weir Yuna has a chance to make a comeback because she's still in her prime and since she hasn't skated hardly at all in nearly two years her body is worn out . She just needs to skate in more competitive events to be sharp. Is she going to skate at Worlds this year? I hope she also skates at 4CC too.

    "My main goal today was to get at least 28 technical points, which are required now to be allowed to go to worlds again; therefore, I concentrated more on the technical aspect here and not so much on expression," Kim said. "I know that I have to work more on [adding] emotion in the future, but tomorrow, in the free skate, I will have less stress." She will add more drama in the future.

    Speaking of Sonja Henie, she repeated twice. Witt was the second. Kim could very well be the third.

    "Rather than being nervous, I looked forward to the competition and there wasn't too much pressure for me because it was a small competition."

    "That's how I felt up to this morning practice but, in the warm up, I got tense and felt the nerves while performing."

    "My legs were shaking at certain moments.(laugh)"

    "I was nervous but prepared, so I tried to get the job done with every element. I had one scary moment but, overall, I'm satisfied."

    "My objective was to get the minimum TES, so I'm glad I'm already halfway to the goal line."

    "Rather than my total score, I was focused on getting good TES and so my mind was keep telling me that I shouldn't make mistakes."

    "Because I played not a vampire but a leading lady who is bitten, I think people might not feel stronger than they expected. I tried to express the complicating feelings denying temptation but falling into them at the same time."

    "Because of being first competition, I don't remember how I performed.(laugh) I guess it will require yet time to be able to express well."

    Well, I thought she was pretty darn expressive already. Can't wait to see this when it has more miles on it!

    Can't wait to see her long program. She may be relaxed a bit now as there's some room for mistakes in the FS.

    I guess some of the ladies feel their dreams slowly going down the drain. Of course, with this notice this far ahead of the Olympics, they do have the opportunity to up the ante.

    Why did they have to insert that nude material in the neck line?

    I would bet on the landing of the double Axel...

    Her PCS is outrageous. She's really not that much better there than the rest of the field.
