Gael Monfils, James Blake and Ana Ivanovic will compete in the Brisbane ATP/WTA International tournament in January ahead of the Australian Open, organisers said on Thursday.

Frenchman Monfils, ranked 13, cracked the top 10 ATP rankings for the first time this year and will be joined by American Blake, currently ranked No 24 in the world.

Former French Open champion Ivanovic, of Serbia, is ranked at 11 after reaching the world number one spot in June 2008 following her performance at the Paris Grand Slam tournament.

The trio will join already confirmed players Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters for the second running of the January 3-10 Brisbane International, a warm-up for the first of the four Grand Slam tournaments in Melbourne.
