2017 NHK Trophy Ladies Preview

Of those, finished competing on the Grand Prix this season, Wakaba Higuchi stands at 24 points, while Elena Radionova has 20.  They will both need some help from other competitors to have a chance at making the Final, so the event is wide open at this point, but a few spots could be filled this weekend.

This is a bit of a rematch of Rostelecom Cup, as Medvedeva, Kostner, Nagasu, and Bell are all competing again here.  Medvedeva and Kostner took the top two spots in Russia, while Bell got the best of Nagasu on the US side.  This will actually be the third time this season that Bell and Nagasu have competed against each other, and both have come out on top once.

Medvedeva has won gold at Skate America, Skate Canada, Trophee de France, Rostelecom Cup, and the Grand Prix Final.  If she wins gold here this weekend, she’ll only need to win gold at Cup of China to have won every single event on the circuit, despite this being just her third season competing.

Both Yuna Shiraiwa and Polina Tsurskaya are making their Grand Prix debuts.  Shiraiwa is the youngest at 15, while Carolina Kostner is the oldest at 30.  Eight of these ladies have scored over 190 points, while three have scored over 200 in their careers.  Medvedeva currently holds World record scores in every category.

Evgenia Medvedeva won the gold medal at Rostelecom Cup.  All of her short program jumps are in the bonus, including her triple flip +triple toe and her triple loop.  She has earned all Level 4s at both of her events this season (including the earlier Ondrej Nepela Trophy) and had positive GOEs on all of her elements.  In Russia, she netted 9 points from GOEs alone.  Her program components were in the mid 9s and she earned three 10.00 marks.  She reworked her free skate layout after Nepela, moving one of the jumping passes out of the bonus.  She still has a triple flip + triple toe and a triple salchow + triple toe.  She earned all Level 4s and all positive GOEs, except for her final double axel which she fell on, extremely unusual for her.  Even with the fall, she still earned 13 points from GOEs and had program components in the mid 9s, including three 10.00 marks, although they were all from the same judge.  She needs a gold or silver medal to guarantee her spot in the Final, while a bronze would keep her in the running.  She has the best short program, best free skate, and best total scores.

Carolina Kostner won the silver medal at Rostelecom Cup, behind Medvedeva.  She hit her triple toe + triple toe combination for the first time this season in her short program and also landed a triple loop.  She earned all Level 4s and had all positive GOEs worth 7 points.  Her program components were in the high 8s to mid 9s, not her best for the season.  Out of three events, she has not landed a triple + triple combination in her free skate, although Rostelecom Cup was her cleanest performance to date with no popped jumps or falls and she did add a double axel + half loop + triple salchow combination.  She received all Level 4s and positive GOEs totaling 11 points.  Her program components were in the high 8s to mid 9s.  She needs a gold medal to guarantee her spot in the Final, while a silver would keep her in contention.  She has the 3rd best short program, 5th best free skate, and 5th best total scores.

Rika Hongo placed 6th at Skate Canada.  Her short program had an under-rotated triple flip + triple toe and a triple lutz.  Her program components were in the low to mid 7s.  Her free skate was riddled with jump problems, including four under-rotation calls, but she does have a triple flip + triple toe and a double axel + triple toe + double toe planned.  Her program components were slightly better in the mid to high 7s.

Mirai Nagasu placed a disappointing 9th at Rostelecom Cup.  In her short program, she has stood up on triple axel at both of her events this season, earning a negative GOE at the US Figure Skating Classic and under-rotating it in Russia.  At Rostelecom Cup, her triple + triple combination was also downgraded and she fell, and she fell on an under-rotated triple lutz, giving her no clean jumping passes in the short program.  Despite that, her program components were still fairly good in the mid to high 7s.  She landed a quality triple axel in the free skate at the US International Figure Skating Classic, and while she stood up on it in Russia, it was under-rotated.  She also under-rotated two other jumps, which was better than the four jumps she had under-rotated at the US Classic.

Mariah Bell finished 6th at Rostelecom Cup and won’t be able to qualify for the Final, but could still compete for a medal here.  She hasn’t hit her triple lutz + triple toe cleanly in the short program this season but twice she has received all positive GOEs on everything else in the program and her program components were much better in Russia, scoring in the mid 7s.  She has hit her triple lutz + triple toe combination in her free skate twice with positive GOEs, and she fully rotated all of her jumps, much better than at the US Figure Skating Classic.  Her program components were what really held her back, scoring in the mid 7s, although this was better than she received earlier in the season.

Satoko Miyahara is competing in her first event of the season.  She won the silver medal right behind Medvedeva at the Grand Prix Final last year, but then had to miss the rest of the season.  It has been 11 months since she has competed, so this will be the first real test if she’ll be competitive for an Olympic medal in a few short months.  If she medals here, she’ll have a chance to qualify for the Final at Skate America.

Polina Tsurskaya is a bit of a wild card at this event.  She won two gold medals on the Junior Grand Prix last season with some of the highest junior marks recorded.  She had to have surgery and missed the Junior Grand Prix Final.  She placed 3rd at Russian nationals as a junior and a disappointing 10th at Junior Worlds, but that likely was not her at her best.  The surgery was on her knee and this will be a better indicator of how well it has healed and whether she can land all of the jumps without an issue.

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Evgenia Medvedeva

Silver: Carolina Kostner

Bronze: Satoko Miyahara

2016 JGP Estonia Ladies Preview

Polina Tsurskaya won gold at JGP Russia where she set a new personal best short program.  Her free skate had some problems, including a singled axel.  She has a strong first combination of triple lutz + triple toe + double toe, but she doubled the first jump in Russia.  She needs a gold or silver medal to guarantee her spot in the Final, while a silver medal would give her a strong chance to qualify.  She has the best short program, 9th best free skate and 6th best total scores.

Rin Nitaya won the bronze medal at JGP France where she set new personal bests across the board.  She had two double axel + triple toe combinations in the bonus at that event, but had a popped axel that received no credit.  She needs a gold medal to give herself a chance to qualify for the Final.  She has the 9th best short program, 10th best free skate and 10th best total scores.

Mako Yamashita won a bronze medal at JGP Japan in her debut.  Her triple lutz + triple toe in her free skate was downgraded but she does have a double axel + triple toe + double toe in the bonus.  She needs a gold medal to keep herself in contention for the Final.  She has the 5th best short program and 7th best total scores.

Elizaveta Nugumanova won bronze in her debut at JGP Russia.  Her free skate has a triple loop + triple loop and a double axel + triple toe + double toe in the bonus.  Like Yamashita and Nitaya, she needs a gold medal to keep herself in the running for the Final.  She has the 8th best free skate score.

Tessa Hong placed 6th in her international debut at JGP Spain last season.  She’s struggled with injuries over the years which has kept her from being able to compete at US Nationals, but she’s continued to skate well enough to earn another JGP assignment this year.  While her score in Spain last year, likely isn’t enough to keep up with the Russians and Japanese, it should give her a chance of scoring in the top six here.

My podium predictions:

Gold: Polina Tsurskaya

Silver: Mako Yamashita

Bronze: Rin Nitaya

2015 JGP Poland Ladies Preview

Polina Tsurskaya put the skating world on notice in her JGP debut in Slovakia.  Her short program was solid with a triple lutz + triple toe that gained +2 and +3 GOEs from all the judges.  She had Level 4s on all her spins and steps and received positive GOEs across the board.  Her free skate featured a triple lutz + triple toe+ double toe which also received a positive GOE and was one of the highest scored elements by a lady recorded under IJS.  The rest of her jumps were all in the second half of the program, gaining a bonus, and she again received Level 4s on her steps and spins.  She needs a gold, silver or bronze medal to earn a spot in the Final, while a 4th place finish would keep her in contention.

Kaori Sakamoto took home the silver medal from JGP Latvia.  She received an edge call on her triple lutz in the short program but did it in combination with a triple toe.  Her only mistake on the free skate was a fall on an under-rotated triple loop.  She only has two jumps in the bonus so her program isn’t worth as much as some of the other ladies, even if she executes it perfectly.  She needs a gold or silver medal to qualify for the Final while a bronze would keep her in the hunt.

Rin Nitaya finished 4th behind Tsurskaya at JGP Slovakia, but she was nearly 40 points behind.   She singled her axel and flip in her short program, earning 0 points for these two elements.  She also singled the lutz in her free skate but has two double axel + triple toes back to back toward the end of the program.  She needs a gold medal to keep her in consideration for the Final.

Ekaterina Mitrofanova can not qualify for the Final, but still has a chance to win a medal here.  Her free skate had a fall, two under-rotations, an edge warning and a missed combo.  She also only had one triple + triple combination.

 

My podium predictions:

Gold: Polina Tsurskaya

Silver: Kaori Sakamoto

Bronze: Rin Nitaya
