Andy Murray set for fifth Olympic Games with Team Great Britain

Andy Murray has been selected to represent Team GB for a fifth consecutive Olympic Games after being included in next month's squad.

Murray, who back in February signalled his intention to retire later this year, has been granted an ITF place to compete at Roland Garros despite his lowly singles ranking of 97 due to being a former grand-slam winner and Olympic gold-medallist.

Team GB were also notified on Thursday that 2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu would be in the mix for an ITF place, but she turned down the chance due to the multiple changes in surface over the coming weeks and after only recently returning from a lengthy injury lay-off.

Murray is one of four male singles players selected by LTA Olympic team leader Ian Bates alongside Jack Draper, Cameron Norrie and Dan Evans, with Katie Boulter the sole female participant for Britain.

Joe Salisbury and Neal Skupski will represent Team GB in the men's doubles and the pairing of Murray and Evans have been nominated for an additional space in that competition, which will be determined by the ITF - the governing body of world tennis who run the tournament - on June 25.
