Andy Murray was confirmed on Friday night to make his comeback next week in the Monte Carlo Open after more than a month out with an elbow injury.
The world No 1 was included in the draw for the first clay court Masters event of the European season, where he will play either Tommy Robredo or Gilles Muller after being given a bye to the second round.
Murray will be top seed for the Monte Carlo Open, although given their respective record there defending champion Rafael Nadal will be considered the favourite.
Novak Djokovic is another who returns to action, having also been out since Indian Wells with elbow problems.
Murray was put in the opposite side of the draw from Djokovic and Nadal.
The latter will open with a second round match between the winner of a rare all-GB clash between Dan Evans and Kyle Edmund.
The 29 year-old Scot last played on March 12 – at Indian Wells – although he did play two sets in an exhibition match against Roger Federer last Monday night.
He sat out the Miami Open and Davis Cup quarter final but after nearly two weeks of training believes he is ready for full-on ATP Tour action.
For Murray it is the start of the period when he has to defend his substantial points hauls from 12 months previously.
