After 20 days of rest and treatment for his left wrist pain, Juan Martin del Potro has decided that he is well enough to play next week in Rotterdam, where he is the defending champion.

Del Potro worked out a rehabilitation plan with the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Richard Berger and began practicing on Tuesday in Buenos Aires. After Rotterdam, the Argentine is also planning to play Dubai, Indian Wells, and Miami.

In other ATP news, Andy Murray has accepted a late wild card into Rotterdam, and David Ferrer has taken a wild card into Buenos Aires to replace Rafael Nadal, who pulled out on Thursday with a stomach virus.
