Ellen Perez is determined to continue building after an impressive return to competitive tennis this week.
The Shellharbour product took out the Sydney UTR event, defeating Alexandra Bozovic 6-4 6-4 in the final.
A second UTR tournament follows next week, with Perez already identifying where she can improve.
"I actually had a lot of nerves," Perez said. "I wanted to get a decent start, that didn't happen, but I found my groove as the tournament went on.
"The most important area for me is my serve. I was pretty disappointed with how I served, my first serve percentage was low, I had a few double faults.
"That came with not practising it as much during the time off. It's a part of my game that is usually an advantage, so I want to get that going next week."
Perez expects to spend the next month in Australia training and competing as much as possible until certainty is provided regarding the global tennis calendar.
One event that does loom on the horizon is the US Open, which is scheduled to commence on August 31 and the 24-year-old concedes she has mixed feelings about travelling to New York in the midst of a pandemic.
"I'm definitely a little apprehensive. I've always been laid back, wouldn't think that would happen to me, but cases are picking up.
"I'd need an exemption to leave the country. Then if I leave, I have two weeks isolation when I get back.
"There are a lot of factors to consider, insurance doesn't protect you from pandemics. There's a lot to weigh up. I'd love to play, but there are bigger things to consider."
