Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro has been handed a wildcard entry into this month's Monte Carlo Masters.
Tournament director Zeljko Franulovic confirmed Del Potro's acceptance earlier today, which in turn means that nine of the world's top 10 players will feature at the competition.
"We are very pleased to receive Juan Martin in the principality and [it] is a great treat for our audience. [He is] a great player with an impressive track record and great ambitions every year," Franulovic said in a statement.
Roger Federer is the only player from the top 10 who is not due to compete in Monte Carlo, although reports have claimed that officials are willing to also offer him a wildcard.
