Jamie Murray: ´Andy and I have a good shot to win doubles medal at the Olympic Games´

British tennis player Jamie Murray says winning a doubles medal at the Rio Olympics for him and his brother Andy Murray is a possibility. In their previous two Olympics appearances, the Murray brothers managed to reach the second-round at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and failed to get past the opening-round four years ago in London.

According to the 30-year-old, their current good form could be a positive sign and not playing for a while with each other won't be that big of a deal. 'We will have a good shot at a medal,' said doubles specialist Jamie to Daily Mail on Sunday.

'We are both playing some of the best tennis of our careers. We know each other so well, we have played so many matches together that not playing for a while with each other won't be an issue for us.' The 5th-ranked doubles player in the world also revealed that he and Andy plan to do a couple of practice sessions in the lead-up, and added that for Andy it will be a positive thing as he's sure that most singles players won't go through that process.

'We will be as best prepared as we possibly can be,' noted Jamie. Olympic Tennis Event is scheduled to take place on August 6-14 in Rio De Janeiro. Also Read: The eight biggest winners of the grass-court season
