Andy Murray has to do it the hard way if he’s to become a three-time Olympic champion.
Murray (50/1), who won gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016, has been drawn against ninth seed Felix Auger-Aliassime from Canada in the first round of the men’s singles.
If the 34-year-old progresses then he’ll face either Germany’s Dominik Koepfer or Facundo Bagnis of Argentina before a potential third-round tie against Spain’s sixth seed Pablo Carreno Busta.
Murray’s path to the gold medal includes a projected quarter final against second seed Daniil Medvedev of Russia and a possible semi-final clash with Greece’s third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The three-time Grand Slam winner is on the opposite side of the draw to top seed Novak Djokovic which includes Team GB’s other entrant Liam Broady (325/1), who faces Argentina’s Francisco Cerundolo in the first round.
Murray, who has recovered from two hip surgeries in recent years to return to top-level tennis, also teams up with Joe Salisbury in the men’s doubles.
The British duo face French second seeds Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut in the first round.
Team GB are also represented in the men’s doubles by Andy’s brother Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski, who open up against Argentina’s Andres Molteni and Horacio Zeballos.
