Cohen's out of Trophee Eric Bompard

Anyone else see this one coming? Sarcasm aside, it's a real shame that Sasha won't be competing in Paris next weekend due to tendinitis in her right calf. What's even more of a shame is that the event is so close, there probably isn't enough time for them to find someone else to take her place. It was going to be such a great showdown with her and Yu-na and Mao, though it'll still be an exciting event. Jennifer Kirk has some really interesting comments on her blog, which I recommend you read. What do you think about her withdrawal?

I'm not terribly surprised that she's withdrawing, especially because getting back into competition shape had to be a draining process for her. Overall, I'm skeptical about the US's chances

Yeah, I have to agree with you on that! It's a real shame, especially when you think back in US history, their ladies have always been so strong, and it's definitely leading to a loss of skating support/coverage over there.
