Del Potro gets a Wild Card for the Monte Carlo Masters
After a splendid performance in the US hard court season in Indian Wells and Miami, former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro will now be playing the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters.

Former World No.4 Juan Martin del Potro has registered himself at the Monte-Carlo Masters that kick off next week. The Argentine had earlier decided to not enter the event thinking he would need to rest his injured wrist.

However, this past week Del Potro made a U-turn regarding the tournament as the former US Open champion applied for a Wild Card, tournament director Zeljko Franulovic said. The Wild Card has been awarded to the lanky 24 year-old, who will now be part of a star studded line-up at the first clay court Masters Series event of the year.

The Tower of Tandil had defeated both Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic at Indian Wells in the early part of March, before being outmuscled by Rafael Nadal in the final. Nadal will most definitely enter the event as an overwhelming favourite, but Del Potro likes to play on clay himself, and will be one of the major challengers to the Spaniard’s reign.

Most of the top players will be playing the event in Monte Carlo, except Swiss No.1 Roger Federer. The tournament officials are still holding a Wild Card in case the Swiss decides on entering the event.

Federer is not defending any points at the event as he did not play last year too.
