Murray will compete at Olympics

Andy Murray insists he will represent Great Britain at the Olympics in Beijing this summer, despite the Games being very close to the US Open.

"I'm definitely going to play at the Olympics," said the British number one ahead of the 2008.

"It's something that not all athletes get the chance to do in their career. It's an honour to represent your country and I'm looking forward to it.

"I'm just hoping I can get a good run this year and not have any problems with injury."

The tennis competition at the Olympics is set to finish in mid-August, with the US Open scheduled to start on 27 August.

The Games have been in the news for reasons other than sport this week, with the torch relays through London and Paris targeted by protesters displaying their anger over hosts China's human rights record.

A decision has yet to be made whether or not Andy Murray will once again represent Great Britain in the tennis event at the 2012 Olympics but give they're in London, it is highly likely that he will take part.
