Samantha Stosur is desperate for success at her home grand slam and believes she will move on from her loss to Zheng Jie.
The Queenslander admitted she choked after giving up a 5-2 lead and losing the deciding set 7-5 in her loss to Zheng in the Australian Open second round on Wednesday.
It completed yet another dismal showing for Stosur at Melbourne Park, where she has gone no further than the fourth round.
But while she is craving success in front of her home fans, Stosur said she would put the loss behind her.
"It's difficult. It's just hard no matter where you're playing. You obviously want to play your best," Stosur said.
"I know I haven't been playing my best. I've been trying to get to that point.
"Now, unfortunately, the summer is over as quickly as what it started again. I'll do what I always do and keep playing and keep trying hard.
"I know I'm going to get over it. It's just you want it now, not tomorrow."
In the lead up to the Australian Open, tennis great Martina Navratilova called for Stosur to be more relaxed.
She also suggested the 28-year-old needed to play a safer game and take fewer risks to lower her unforced error count.
But Stosur said there were no plans to change anything and she intends to continue playing as she has been.
"I haven't thought about anything like that. Like I said, I'll keep going out and doing what I do," she said.
"I know the way I need to play to play my best. That's always what I'm striving to do. I think it's just a matter of keeping on those same lines.
"Obviously there's things to think about, lots of things to keep improving. That's what I'm going to try and do."
