Andy Murray will have a lot of pressure on him, as he is Great Britain's best chance to win gold in tennis. As the hosts of this year's Olympics, all eyes will be on Murray.
Murray has struggled a bit this year, as his only win was at the Brisbane International.
There have long been high expectations on Murray in his home country. At Wimbledon, he has finished in the semifinals three times.
Part of his struggles can be traced to back problems. According to BBC, he does feel better:
"I feel much better," Murray told BBC Sport. "The grass will probably be good for me. I've had a few good days practice here and it all feels good."
If Murray's back is truly better, than he will be a contender. As the No. 4 player in the world, Murray will have to play like it in order to beat one of the "Big Three."
For the 24-year-old Murray, the Olympics are bigger than a Grand Slam, via the Daily Mail:
I'd be desperate to win Olympic gold. I think either winning a Slam or Olympic gold would be celebrated by the nation but winning an Olympic medal is something that belongs to your country as well. In sporting terms I would say the Olympics is bigger than winning a Grand Slam because everybody knows what Olympic gold is, whereas not everybody knows what a Grand Slam is.
With the hopes of a nation on his back, Murray will need to turn that desperation into results. In Grand Slams, he has been the bridesmaid three times, but never the bride.
Winning gold in London would be the signature moment of his career and would make him a legend in his home country. There will be lot of pressure.
If he handles it well and plays his defensive style to perfection, then Murray has a chance to pull off some upsets and win Olympic gold.
