British number one Elena Baltacha has said she would be "silly" to commit to her plan of retiring after the Olympics if she is winning matches.
In August, .
"Obviously I said that after the Olympics I'm going to retire," the 28-year-old told BBC Radio Suffolk.
"But it depends what's going to happen. If I still love playing and I feel I can improve and get better, I'd be pretty silly to retire at that point."
The injury problems that have plagued the Ipswich-based Scot's career were rarely seen in 2011, as she regained her position in the world's top 50.
"As long as I still love it, I'm injury free and I'm going in the right direction, I'm going to keep going for as long as I can," she explained.
"I think last year showed me what I was capable of. And this year I've managed not only to improve but I've performed more consistently on a week-to-week basis.
"The year has been amazing but I think I can be better. With a good pre-season you never know what can happen next year."
Baltacha's is coupled with a desire to help lift Britain's Fed Cup team out of the third tier Europe/Africa group.
"The group we're in is still very tough. Sometimes you get a nation that has a top 10 or top 20 player and their number two might be ranked 150," she said.
"Sometimes they will be very tricky if their top seed is playing doubles.
"But I think with the team we have now we can definitely do well and get promotion to the World group."
