British number one Andy Murray says he wants to make up for a disappointing performance in the 2008 Olympics when he plays for Team GB in London this summer.
The world number four crashed out in the first round in the Beijing Olympic tournament four years ago, but says he is relishing playing in London later this year and hopes to make much more of an impact.
The Scot says being involved in the Olympics was a great experience in 2008 and he cannot wait to be part of the London games, where home advantage means he is among the favourites for gold in the sport betting
Murray is hoping this time he can make a serious bid for the Gold medal after his Chinese disappointment.
"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," he said.
"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."
Of more immediate concern for Murray, however, is the French Open at Roland Garros, which begins at the end of May while he is also set to feature in the ATP Masters Series events in Monte Carlo, Hamburg and Rome before then.
Murray is behind Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Feder is the betting for that tourament as he continues to hunt for that elusive first Grand Slam triumph.
He admits with a summer containing Wimbledon and the London Olympics,it is hopefully going to be a few months to remember.
He added: "This summer coming up is going to be huge. Wimbledon and the Olympics would be two of my major goals."
