After a comeback victory against Marcos Baghdatis, Andy Murray answered questions from journalists at a press conference. When asked if there was any difference between Wimbledon and the Olympics the Wimbledon finalist said:
"Yes there is a difference, before the tournament I was talking to other players during training. Everyone talked about how it was different with and without the purple. For me, playing at Wimbledon is certainly a good thing because I am very confident but to play the Olympics on grass is totally different. It's something you do not have the chance to live again. So far I really like it. Like when we are in a mixed area, which of course does not happen during the tournament circuit, everyone is encouraged and there is a great team spirit. "
A reporter then asked Murray if he had touched a gold medal:
“No, no one has yet offered to touch one, but the plan is to win one of my own. Everyone says that you should never touch a trophy before winning one. In fact I have never even touched the one at Wimbledon or an Olympic gold medal. "
