If she wasn't too full of herself thinking she'd get a QWC she could have used her SR and play both tournaments. See? They are not that useless after all.
Full of herself is maybe the wrong expression, because otherwise she wouldn't have played some 10k in Turkey after all. She was too idealist, that's Alexandra, she always believes than things come true if you believe hard enough like she did with her knee pain hoping things will solve without her making a break or considering an operation, but reality is different.
