Tennis: Murray to represent Britain at Olympics



British Tennis star Andy Murray has been selected in the Great Britain squad that will participate at the Tennis event of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.


The two-time Olympic Gold medalist will have a chance to defend his tennis title at the Tokyo Olympics. Murray will join Neal Skupski, Dan Evans, Joe Salisbury, Heather Watson and Johanna Konta in the lineup.


"The Olympics means a huge amount to me, it's a massive honour to be able to compete at a fourth Games," Murray, who is heading to his fourth Olympic Games, said in a statement.


"Leading Team GB out at the Opening Ceremony five years ago in Rio was one of the highlights of my career. Going to a second Olympics as defending champion is exciting and I'm looking forward to the challenge."


Murray will compete as a wildcard entrant at Wimbledon which starts on Sunday. The 34-year-old will compete in the men's singles in Tokyo, and will team up with Joe Salisbury for the men's doubles.
