London Olympics 2012: 3 Reasons Andy Murray Will Come Away with Gold

The London Olympics are right around the corner, and that means another gold medal will be awarded to a male tennis player.

This years tournament will take place at the All England Club, on its hallowed grass courts.

The play at Wimbledon will end on July 8th, but the Olympics will be played on the same courts, starting on July 28th.

So basically, there will be two Wimbledons this year.

This is something that every tennis fan will cherish, because getting to watch two tournaments from the All England Club is like winning the tennis lottery.

It will be an interesting couple months for Great Britain's top ranked player- Andy Murray.

Murray will be under even more pressure this year than in years past. As he will be expected to play in front of his home fans for tennis glory twice in just over a month. 

However, Murray is no stranger to pressure. He is constantly reminded that no player from Great Britain has won a Grand Slam title since Fred Perry did so in 1936. Many feel that the constant attention, and the pressure that accompanies that attention, has impacted Murray's results in the final rounds of the Grand Slam's in a negative way. 

Murray is under the most pressure to win at Wimbledon, and that pressure may be even greater at the Olympics. 

If he is able to secure Olympic gold, he will be viewed in a different light, and there is reason to believe that he might be ready to breakthrough and capture the gold this summer.
