Two-time Olympic champion Murray selected for Tokyo

Andy Murray can dream of a third successive Olympic tennis singles title after the former world number one was selected in the British team for the Tokyo Games, reports AFP. The 34-year-old Scot's career has been blighted by injury since beating Juan Martin del Potro in a memorable final in the 2016 Rio Games. Murray will also play in the men's doubles in Tokyo, but with Joe Salisbury and not his doubles specialist brother Jamie. The three-time Grand Slam champion made a return to singles action at key Wimbledon warm-up tournament Queen's last week after being sidelined with a groin injury. However, he lost in straight sets to eventual champion and top seed Matteo Berrettini in the second round. Murray has been granted a wild card for Wimbledon, where he has been crowned champion twice, which gets underway next Monday.
