"I said - I insisted, in fact - that I can play on this surface, and it remains one of my favourite surface that tennis has to offer. I was pretty confident about it.
"I guess I proved myself last week that it's not a surface that I don't like. I like playing on grass, probably more than on clay."
Tsitsipas, who opens his Wimbledon campaign on Tuesday against Swiss qualifier Alexander Ritschard, lost his first round against Frances Tiafoe at the Championships 12 months ago in straight sets and admits he wasn't playing the right way on the surface.
He was coming off a final showing at Roland-Garros and didn't make the necessary adjustments to be competitive on grass so soon after his exploits on Parisian clay.
"Last year was difficult for me. I didn't play a single match before Wimbledon on grass. I was trying to play on grass like I did on clay, which was a huge mistake. Technique-wise, tactic-wise, it all fell apart," he confessed.
"For me, it's a new start here at Wimbledon. I see myself a little bit different in terms of how I perceive this surface in particular. The thing that I hope for this year is just get past the first round and see where that leads after."
Sounds like a solid plan!
