Heather Watson reveals that her main focus this year will be on the Olympic Games.

Great Britain's Heather Watson has revealed that her main target this year is to be successful at the Olympic Games in London.

The British number three is expected to compete at her home Grand Slam in Wimbledon later this year.

However, the 19-year-old has claimed that the chance of winning a medal for her country is more important to her in 2012.

"This year my main goal and what I'm really focusing on is playing at the Olympics, because being here in London is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I want to take that," she said.

Watson is currently ranked 115th in the world.
