distance of 0 Haplogroup H73a

Still learning about mtDNA.
I have many matches that are a distance of 0. My understanding is that if this is the case, then there is a better chance that we will match "closer" female ancestor than if the distance is 1 or higher.
I have the Haplogroup. Do I do an advanced search that includes the Haplogroup and contact only those that are a distance of 0 and the exact same Haplogroup as me?
I am thinking that this is the way to go, but thought I would check here first.
Any advice is most welcome!
