It's a big win no doubt, but the only way I see Alex winning is by the grace of god. The thing about rankings is are we ranking based on overall skill? Or recent wins? Or what? Just so much criteria goes Into rankings that it makes the ranking system very broad. He definitely gets into top ten, I'd put him as high as 7 or 8 because if he does get past faber, which will be a miracle, I think guys like McDonald, assuncao, mizugaki, wineland, and barao are all tough matches for Alex.
