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.
