I cant think of anything Lipnitskaya does better than any of Kim, Asada, Kostner, Suzuki, Gold, besides higher base value than some, being more consistent, and better spins. If all of those skate clean she should finish last if the judging is fair. Her jump quality is weaker, her footwork is weaker, her skating skils are much weaker, her interpretation and performance skills are less. I know she will probably beat Gold and Suzuki even if they skate cleanly due to it being in Russia, but that really shouldnt be what would happen. If Gold skates like Nationals and Suzuki like hers, they deserve to score higher than Julia.
