It's just as reasonable to suggest that after winning every prestigious event and taking a break, motivation could be not quite what it was. It is widely known how difficult comebacks are, both physically and psychologically. Combined with Yuna's lack of excitement at Worlds last season, perceived by several posters here, it's just as compliant with Occam's Razor to posit that she may not have the same fire in her belly as she did in 2010. Someone who already has it all in spades, in prestige, fame and fortune but most importantly, in highest achievements given in their field, the hunger is likely to diminish. On top of that she is struggling with an injury. As to suggestion of orientalist prejudice: plenty of skaters are pressured into competing by outside forces (not themselves), regardless of background. That's not exactly a new phenomenon.
