So, yes, based on her ranking, the 10s and the 25s are where she ought to be. But it seems that in Alex's head, that 512 number is just some kind of bizarre fluke, rather than an accurate indicator of how well she can play nowadays. So she's not mentally ready to play at the lowly level her game deserves.
