Our poor Yuzuru must be so stressed right now! If you guys watched his interview with Charlie White after the sp yesterday, you will know that he was on the verge of crying. I feel so bad for him. I just want to congratulate him and tell him that he did well and that I’m proud. It hurts me so much that he is going through a hard time right now and all I can do is watch from my tv screen. Feel better Yuzuru! <3333
“But just the grace, I think that’s a good word to sort of describe from beginning to end the way in which he handled that program. Just graceful. He is in grace. And for the technical level and on top of the pressure. And I mean, having been to Japan and understanding the culture, the fandom, the demand for excellence. It’s high and he knows it. His ability to deal with that has improved with his maturity. “
— Charlie White (from Ice Talk Ep. 27).

As soon as I grew accustomed to skating
with Charlie and being able to hold his hand while I was competing and kind of
dealing with the pressure with someone standing next to me, I no longer enjoyed
standing in the middle of the ice without that hand to hold onto. - Meryl Davis
