Andy Murray has insisted that he will represent Great Britain at the Olympics in Beijing this summer.
I’m definitely going to play at the Olympics, It’s something that not all athletes get the chance to do in their career. It’s an honour to represent your country and I’m looking forward to it. I’m just hoping I can get a good run this year and not have any problems with injury.
This years Olympic Games has been in the news for more reasons than sport recently, with many protests occurring over the hosts China’s human rights record. However, Andy was only focusing on tennis and the court challenges ahead.
For me, the Olympics is more about the sport, I’m just concentrating and looking forward to playing in the tennis. I’m not a politician.
The tennis competition at the Olympics is set to finish on 17 August, with the US Open scheduled to start on 27 August.
Murray will be joined by Roger Federer the world number and most dominant force in tennis over the last 4 year as he aims to add Olympic glory to his collection of titles.
