Ram and Erlich relishing third Olympics

    Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram are relishing the chance to compete at Wimbledon for the second time in a matter of weeks at the upcoming Olympic Games.

    Erlich said: "It will be our third Olympics,” he said. "It will be nice to be back here in London on this grass. It’s our favourite surface and we have good memories here. That will be an advantage here at the Olympics.

    "Our preparations will be better this time. Maybe we'll play in Newport in the US, which is another grass tournament. One week before the Olympics we will rest and just practice.

    "What hurt us in other Olympics is that we didn't have time to prepare. We came straight from another tournament. We came from the final on Cincinnati and had just one day to practice before the games started. We needed more time to get used to the Olympic atmosphere. It is a completely different tournament.

    "It's very different playing for your country compared to a regular ATP tournament. It is so important to play for your country against the top quality teams that go to the Olympics.

    "To be part of the Israeli team makes you proud and you want to do well and represent your country to the best of your ability.

    "The Olympics in London will be a nice adventure."
