Andy Murray looking forward to Olympics test
Andy Murray, who tennis fans will be hoping to see in the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals later this year, has predicted that the Olympic tournament at Wimbledon next year will be an important and competitive event.
Britain's number one said that playing in the Olympics is now an ambition for all of the game's top players, reports Sky Sports.
Next year, the leading stars in men's and women's tennis will return to Wimbledon less than a month after London's traditional Grand Slam tournament to compete for medals.
Commenting on the significance of the Olympics in the modern game, Murray said: "It's very important, it's right up there. All of the top players want to play in the Olympics now.
"When you are part of the Olympics and have been to an opening ceremony and have stayed in an Olympic village, you see how great a competition it is and how important it is to win medals for your country and represent your country."
Holders of Barclays ATP World Tour Finals tickets could see Murray in action against the likes of Novak Djokovic and Olympic gold medal winner Rafael Nadal at the O2 in November.
