Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro has been handed a wildcard entry into the Shanghai Masters following his battling silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
The 27-year-old, who has been hampered by wrist injuries for the past three years, was beaten by Britain’s Andy Murray for the gold but had dumped out world No 1 Novak Djokovic and fifth-ranked Rafa Nadal en route to the final.
Del Potro, who reached the third round at Wimbledon in his come-back slam, won through to the second round of the US Open with a straight sets victory over fellow Argentine Diego Schwartzman on Tuesday. The Shanghai Masters begin from October 9.
