Cape Town - British tennis player Jamie Murray has talked up his chances of winning a men's doubles medal with his brother, Andy Murray, at the upcoming Rio 2016 Olympics.

The 30-year-old Scot last teamed up with his brother, who is currently the world No 2 for singles, to win the 2015 Davis Cup for Great Britain, and he believes they are both in great form ahead of the games in Brazil.

"We will have a good shot at a medal," Jamie told the Daily Mail.

"We are both playing some of the best tennis of our careers. We know each other so well, we have played so many matches together that not playing for a while with each other won't be an issue for us."

The No 5 ranked doubles specialist further insisted that he and Andy "will be as best prepared as we possibly can be" for the games with the tennis event to take place between August 6th and 14th.
