#4 2012 Olympics gold medal match win against Federer

The 2012 London Olympics was a little extra special for all tennis players as it was being hosted at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. The whole of Britain was behind Murray as they hoped to see an Olympic male singles champion after a wait of 104 years and yes, Murray did manage to end this wait as he defeated Roger Federer pretty comfortably in straight sets.

By doing so he became the first British man to win an Olympics gold medal since Josiah Ritchie in 1908.

Murray had lost to Federer earlier that year in the Wimbledon final, but he managed to put that defeat behind him as he went on to win one of the most important titles of his career.

#3 2016 Olympics gold medal match win against Del Potro

If winning one Olympics gold medal is good, then winning two is even better. By defeating Juan Martin del Potro in the 2016 final, Murray became the first male tennis player to win two Olympics singles titles.

Del Potro had just returned to the ATP tour after a long absence due to a wrist injury. The Tower of Tandil did manage to put up a fight, but there was no stopping Murray as he eventually prevailed in four sets and successfully managed to defend his title.
