The British Olympic Association have announced that Andy Murray is the first tennis player selected for Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics, as the Scot appeared at press conference in Wimbledon on Thursday (June 21st).
SOUNDBITE: (English) Andy Murray, Team GB tennis player:
"I can't say exactly how different it will be, being at a London Olympics. What I do know is that when I've played at Wimbledon, playing in front of home support makes a huge difference to your performance, I think your focus as well. When I played in the last Olympic Games, it was a bit of an eye-opener to me. I maybe got a bit wrapped up too much in it, and I was trying to see other sports and watch as many of the athletes as I could, because as a tennis player - in an individual sport - we're not really used to being around that. Having had the experience of last time I will learn from that, and do something a little bit differently this time. Hopefully that will contribute to a better performance, because I was very disappointed when I finished so early in Beijing."
