Murray sets sights on double target

by Setanta Staff , 11 April 2012

Andy Murray has revealed that his main aim this year is to secure the Wimbledon title and follow it up with an Olympic gold medal.

The world number four has taken time out of his preparations for a crack at the French Open at Roland Garros, which starts at the end of next month, to discuss his summer ambitions in London.

Murray, who will feature at ATP Masters Series events in Monte Carlo, Hamburg and Rome in the next month, insists the Men's Singles title at the All-England Club in July is top of his wanted list closely followed by a gold medal at the London Olympics.

The British number one, who lost out to Lu Yen-Hsun of Taiwan in the first round at the Beijing Olympics four years ago, has described the Olympics as a fifth Grand Slam for 2012.

"This summer coming up is going to be huge. Wimbledon and the Olympics would be two of my major goals," he said.

"When I played in Beijing, I didn't play well, but it was one of the best experiences I have had as an athlete, being around all the top athletes in the world...Going back to the village each night, you see a chart on the wall of all the medals we have won.

"It would be nice to be part of that too."
