Andy Murray: I felt that incredible sense of pride like I had never experienced before

Andy Murray showing his gold medal, London 2012

I don’t remember much from the final game to be honest. Playing in front of a home crowd is not something that tennis players get to do often, let alone playing at a home Olympics. What I do remember though, as soon as I had hit the ace to win the match I felt this […]

Rafa Nadal: To finish the two weeks with a victory was something so so special to me

Stefan Edberg: It does feel good to be an Olympic medallist

It does feel good to be an Olympic medallist. At the time, I was quite disappointed in 1988 with the bronze medals. I was really looking for the gold medal. I gave it a shot in 1992, clay court wasn’t my best surface at the time and I got knocked out there. It wasn’t the […]

Marc Rosset: it’s my number one achievement

Marc Rosset, Barcelona 1992

It’s something that’s special because I’m proud to be Swiss. I love my country and when you have the national anthem, like when you play Davis Cup, you feel something special. It’s unique, because you have the gold medal, and the fact it was the only medal for Switzerland in ’92 meant it was even […]

Mecir: I didn’t win a Grand Slam but it’s hard to say if I would change it for anything else

Miloslav Mecir, Seoul 1988

It was a special feeling when I converted the match point. It was a little bit different on the podium when the national anthem started up and you begin to realise what has happened. It’s very difficult to describe. Before my quarterfinal I had friends from other sports, like handball, cycling and athletics, who had […]

1908 Olympics Games: Britain takes the medals

Extract from Tennis’s strangest matches by Peter Seddon: Since the Modern Olympic Games began in 1896, the number of occasions on which British competitors have made a clean sweep of the medals in one event has been, let’s admit it, rather fewer than they would have liked.
