World number one Rafael Nadal has announced that he will play in the Buenos Aires ATP tournament next year.
The 13-time Grand Slam winner has not competed at the Argentine clay-court event since 2005.
"After a time when I was unable to go, this year I'm going to return to the Buenos Aires tournament and I'm excited to play the Copa Claro again," Nadal told reporters.
Tournament director Martin Jaite added: "We're very happy to have Rafa, to have a world number one playing for the points in Argentina."
The tournament will start on February 10, with the final being played six days later.
