Andy Murray believes his chances of winning Olympic gold are boosted as Roger Federer will be playing in his first Games singles final.
Federer, a 17-times Grand Slam champion, lifted his seventh Wimbledon title last month by beating Murray.
Murray overcame Novak Djokovic to reach his first Olympic final - which will take place on Sunday - while Federer, 30, beat Juan Martin del Potro.
The Swiss has played 107 career singles finals to Murray's 32, winning 75 to the Briton's 22.
This year's Wimbledon final was Federer's eighth and Murray's first.
But Murray has won eight of their 16 meetings and will be buoyed by his rousing victory over world number two Djokovic in the semi-finals, which guaranteed him at least a silver medal.
