British tennis champion Andy Murray has said winning the gold at the London Olympics is his dream, and added that if does achieve that goal, it would be the "ultimate moment".

The British No 1, who fell just short of becoming the first British man to win the Wimbledon men's singles title for 76 years, is convinced the Olympics is bigger than anything else in tennis.

According to The Mirror, Murray wants to make amends for his Beijing flop four years ago when he crashed out in the first round of the singles and was eliminated along with brother Jamie at the second-round stage of the doubles.

"I am desperate to win a gold at the Olympics. It would be the -ultimate moment," he was quoted, as saying.

"To me, the Olympics is the biggest sporting competition by miles. What's good for me, and gives me a chance of doing well, is that I'm at home and with friends and family. I can go home in the evening to see them and it's a lot more relaxing than other periods of the year," he added.

"And, I get to spend time in my own bed, which is a luxury for a tennis player. There will be pressure and stress and what not. But it will be a great tournament, sandwiched in between Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

"I'm looking forward to it as a spectator. I like watching other sports, in fact I love watching other sports. It's not like I'm only going to be watching tennis or football. I will get to see a bit of everything," Murray said. (ANI)
