Monaco: Seventh-ranked Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina has been given a wild card into the Monte Carlo Masters this month.

Tournament director Zeljko Franulovic announced the decision on Tuesday, having recently awarded a wild card to Frenchman Gael Monfils, whose ATP ranking has dropped to No. 104 after a year affected by knee injuries.

Novak Djokovic will play in the April 13-21 clay-court tournament. The top-ranked Serb lost last year's final to Rafael Nadal, who will be bidding for his ninth straight Monte Carlo title.
