Murray wants to win Olympic medal

Murray has risen to number 14 in the world rankings
Andy Murray is planning to try to win a gold medal for Great Britain at next year's Beijing Olympics.

The British number one wants to play at the Games in August, even though they take place just before the US Open.

"I've never done it before but everyone says it's a great experience being in the Olympic Village," he said,

"It only comes around once every four years so there's quite a lot of pressure for you to perform well but I'm looking forward to it."

Murray will hope to do better than Tim Henman, who lost in straight sets to Jiri Novak in the Athens Games in 2004 and to Karol Kucera four years earlier in Sydney.

Henman however did win silver at Atlanta in 1996 in the men's doubles along with Neil Broad.
