These two are often considered the best 2 pro ladies skaters of all time. Yamaguchi turned pro after winning the 92 Olympics and worlds. She developed a strong rivalry on the pro scene with Midori Ito for a time (Ito beat her once at world pros). Sato turned pro in the 94-95 season, had a relatively disappointing 1st season, but then when on to beat Yamaguchi, Kerrigan, Biellmann, Chouinard, Kadavy etc that next season. Since then both continued a strong rivalry until the early 2000s trading titles. Both had great jumps, choreography and diversity as pros far more than amatuers IMO. Yuka had some of the best footwork bar none of any lady back then. So who wins?
