Two Time Olympic Tennis Champion Murray to Games in Tokyo

Two-time Olympic tennis champion Andy Murray will defend his title in Tokyo. The 34-year-old Scotsman won the singles titles in 2012 in London and 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

 

He will compete in both singles and doubles at the Olympic Games in Japan, the British Tennis Association announced.

Murray extended his title in Rio by beating Argentinian Juan Martín del Potro in four sets in the final. Four years earlier, he had it a lot easier in the final against the Swiss Roger Federer. In front of his own audience in London, Murray took gold in three sets.

The injury-ridden Scotsman, former number 1 in the world, has dropped to 119th in the world rankings.

Murray will compete in doubles with Joe Salisbury. In the women’s competition, Johanna Konta and Heather Watson will compete in both singles and doubles on behalf of Great Britain.
