She's a win away from her first world surfing title but Australia's Tyler Wright insists the 2013 crown is not on her mind.
"I don't really think about it," she said ahead of the eighth and final round of the women's tour in Portugal.
The 19-year-old former Culburra Beach surfer goes into the EDP Cascais Girls Pro second on the season's rankings, 200 points behind Hawaii's Carissa Moore.
Both had a stellar year but it will be their performance at Carcavelos, starting today that will ultimately decide their overall placing.
"Numbers don't really matter to me. I just love to see girls surfing and pushing the limits," Wright said.
"I'm here to surf and have fun and experience Portugal. Let's see what the week brings."
Moore, on the other hand, said the thought of hoisting the winner's trophy occupied her mind more than her Australian rival.
"But I'm excited," the 21-year-old said.
"I'm here to have fun and surf [but] I have to admit that I really want it [the world title] because my dad promised me a puppy.
"I'm stoked that we get to finish off the tour here.
"The waves can be really fun and challenging and I'm looking for a strong finish to end the year."
Wright battles Hawaiian Alana Blanchard and Sofia Mulanovich of Peru, while Moore faces compatriot Malia Manuel and Teresa Bonvalot.
Australia's hopes of giving rise to another champion doesn't end with Wright.
Sally Fitzgibbons is still in the hunt for this year's title after she won the season's penultimate event in Hossegor, France, last week.
"Hopefully I can replicate that here and the waves clear up," said the 22-year-old, currently ranked No.3 .
"There is a lot of potential out there and the girls on tour are all so good.
"I have great boards under my feet though. I'm very much looking forward to getting competition underway."
Fitzgibbons will meet compatriots Laura Enever and Rebecca Woods in her opening heat. AAP
