London 2012: Andy Murray ready to make amends for Beijing
If Andy Murray is just another tennis superstar paying lip service to the Olympic Games, he is putting up a very good front.
With three runner-up finishes to his name in Grand Slam finals, the 24-year-old spends most of his life working towards - and discussing - that elusive first major title.
But, born in 1987, Murray is part of a generation that has grown up with tennis as part of the Olympics, and the leading players' attitudes to the Games now are markedly different to those in 1988, when the sport returned after a 64-year break.
"Tennis at the Olympics has become a big deal, everyone plays it now, whereas 10, 15 years ago guys were skipping the Olympics," he says. "It's one of the best experiences I've had as an athlete.
"I went to the opening ceremony in Beijing - it was unbelievable. It's a bit surreal because it's such a massive thing and you don't quite realise at the time. As a tennis player you're used to walking out into the stadium and it's like, 'Hi, how're you doing?' When you walk out in the Olympic arena it's just very different."
Murray shared a room with his brother, Jamie, in Beijing ("not a happy place after we lost") but is yet to decide whether he will stay in the village in London.
Despite his enthusiasm to do so, he admits that living just 20 minutes from the Olympic venue of Wimbledon means that basing himself in Stratford could be an unnecessary hassle.
