Andy Murray makes Britain 2024 Paris Olympic Games team

Andy Murray was named as one of the four British singles players for the Paris Olympics on Sunday, marking his fifth Summer Games. SportsRation reports.

Murray, who has indicated he plans to retire later this year, was granted an ITF place to compete at the French Open at Roland Garros despite his singles ranking of 97, thanks to his status as a former Grand Slam winner and Olympic gold medalist.

Team GB also learned that 2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu had the opportunity for an ITF place but declined due to the multiple surface changes over the upcoming weeks and her recent return from a lengthy injury.

Murray, who won Olympic gold in London 2012 and Rio 2016, will be joined by fellow male singles players Jack Draper, Cameron Norrie, and Dan Evans. Katie Boulter is the sole female participant for Britain.

In men’s doubles, Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski will represent Team GB. Additionally, Murray and Evans have been nominated for an extra spot in the doubles competition, with the ITF set to decide on June 25.
