US Open winner Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina will make his comeback from a 12-month injury layoff at the Sydney International in January after being handed a wildcard into the tournament.

Del Potro has been out of action since 2009's Australian Open with a wrist injury, dropping from 4 to 259 on the men's world rankings. The wildcard will allow him to join a field for the Jan. 9-15 tournament which includes Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis and American Sam Querrey.

Organizers confirmed on Wednesday that seven of the world's top 10 women will take part in the the Australian Open warm-up event at Sydney Olympic Park.
