Murray set to end Britain`s wait for Wimbledon by recreating 2012 Olympic spiritLondon: British tennis ace Andy Murray has said that he believed that the he will be able to win the Wimbledon and end Britain`s lengthy wait, inspired by the London Olympics spirit.

The Scot came close to making history when he lost to Roger Federer in last year`s final but has since then claimed his maiden Grand Slam title as well as an Olympic Gold medal.

Insisting that he can make the home crowd proud if they support him the same way they did in the 2012 Olympics, Murray however, quipped that Britain will not be seeing any more tears, citing his crying on centre court after last year`s final.

According to the World No.2, he felt that the people`s perception of him had changed and they started seeing a different side to him during the Olympics, adding that his fans had seen that although he had tried hard at Wimbledon last year, he was unable to win.

Stating that after his Wimbledon loss, he was surprised and got a performance boost by his fans` support at the Olympics, Murray also said that he managed to avoid a hangover after last year`s Wimbledon at the US Open with the Olympic support and hoped to see the same this year too.

Murray further said that it helps a player ands makes him feel that he is playing on his home court if the crowd is noisy and vocal.

Regretting his outpouring of emotion after last year`s defeat to Federer at the Wimbledon, Murray said that as an athlete, he should have controlled his emotions, adding that he was unable to do that on that day.

Murray won gold in the men`s singles tournament, and silver with Laura Robson in the mixed doubles event before going on to win the US Open.
