    My choice would be Ivan Volobuev. He's 20 I think and awesome.

    That. He's very promising and there isn't really anybody better available around, is there?

    I third this. He has a very dramatic style of skating which would mesh well with hers. Oh PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE - somebody out there - suggest this to her!!!

    K/A never really materialized, unfortunately. :(

    Jana is so talented. She deserves another world medal. I hope she can find her "Trankov!"

    I liked Finnice's suggestion of John Kerr from the last thread. Complicated as to countries though.

    Volobuiev is the only choice IMO but the coach thing is an obstacle. She didn't part in good terms with Svinin/Zhuk. After him.. umm what happened with the lost post Torino generation of dancers??? Sergeev, Maximishin, Grachev?? will any of these be willing to un-retire ala Blanchard..

    If she goes for internationals again what about Sergei Verbillo? He was similar to Novitski, decent skater and the UKR-RUS nationalities issues I believe are much easier to work out.

    I hope she finds a new partner. I thought she was ok with Andreev, but I'm not that sad that they're done, since she really deserves much better than him and wasn't going to get much farther than Russian Nationals with him, IMO.

    With Andreev, she didn't go international. He's a Russian citizen, which simplified matters,

    I hope she finds someone who she doesn't have to hold back around. Jana is more talented than a lot of teams combined that have won world and Oly medals, plus she's so cool with how she pulls such extreme idea's off. She deserves to have her Volosozhar/Trankov moment.

    I actually really like the idea of her skating with John Kerr a lot!! But that would be a citizenship :drama: I would love to see Jana switch countries :cheer:

    If Russia can fast forward his citizenship, can't he compete at the worlds this year since his last competition was at europeans 2011 (i Know this is not going to happen). Same things can be said of Jana she could also compete at the 2012 worlds for GBR if UK can fast forward the citizenship (not going to happen as well.)

    Amen! ITA.

    Personally, I'd like to see her back with her old coaches. For me, they are the best choreographers in Russia today. Just looking at the JGP, most of the dances I've really liked have all come from those coaches.

    I sure hope she finds a new partner soon! Did not think that Andreew was a good choice, more like a waste of time, but did not expect the partnership to end because of an injury.

    arkadi sergeev would be great for her; it´s a shame, he and mikhailova never matched to stay long enough to achieve great results; they were gorgeous with excellent skills.

    i hope yana quickly finds someone worth new, we can´t loose another great diva of this sport. i´m still getting used to never seeing maria mukhortova again:(

    Sergei Verbillo is an interesting idea, but I had thought he'd had his own health issues which factored into his retirement - knees maybe? I don't remember. Others who recall more can correct me, please.

    How about teaming Jana with -- drumroll! -- a Russian? I think that it's ridiculous and ludicrous for a country with such a strong dance & pairs tradition to look outside its borders for partnering possibilities. Period.

    I'd love to see Kokhlova with Tkachenko, for example. (Ryazanova is too tall & biggish for him, IMO.) Piseev should look for an existing Russian dance couple in which the man is the star then 'make things happen' for the glory of Mother Russia.

    In the good ol soviet times, they would haven broken up a current team to get her a suitable partner. They would have told Tkachenko to skate with her...not ask him nicely.

    Not sure where I read this, but didn't Yana approached Tkachenko re: partnering up? Apparently Tkachenko told Yana that he was happy with Ryazanova. That's why she approached Andreev?

    They don't have to have the citizenship to compete at Worlds. They need to change the citizenship only to compete at Olympics.

    She is amazing, and I really hope to see her really soon with a good partner.
    I'm sure there are plenty of good ice dancers in Russia.

    I was going to suggest Tkachenko, but I remember reading that too.

    Yep! :lol:

    His edge work is lovely :swoon:, but he doesn't seem very strong in the lifts. Of course, he is very young so he could improve that area in his skating.

    Is Jana about the same height as Valeria?
