    An Olympic result which may have just have inspired some future tennis stars in New Zealand

    An Olympic result which may have just have inspired some future tennis stars in New Zealand


    Men's tennis doubles pair Michael Venus and Marcus Daniell won bronze at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

    Newstalk ZB tennis commentator Matt Brown says for kids to be able to see what these players have achieved perhaps shows them a bit of a pathway and the feeling that little old New Zealand can do it.

    He says we punch about our weight in some many sports, and these two have shown they can do it too.
