How times have changed in just 2 seasons. In 2018 she delivered a clean free skate with 2 3/3s to win the surprise silver. This season, if she delivered the same free skate, she would probably place 5th at best if the Russians and Rika skate 80% or above.I think Wakaba will bring it at Worlds.
I'm sure she is motivated to go back (don't forget, silver in 2018). I'd love to see her bring back 3Lz+3Lo, but consistency is more important and if she can do a clean SP and FS I have no doubt she will be in the top 6.
