Argentine Jose Acasuso has received the first wild card into the Copa Claro, an ATP World Tour 250 clay-court tennis tournament to be played 12-20 February at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club.

Acasuso, who reached the final in 2008 (l. Nalbandian) and 2001 (l. Kuerten), was delighted to receive the wild card. "This tournament is one of my favourites. I had great results and memories in Buenos Aires (Lawn Tennis Club). I hope to repeat this performance", said the World No. 251, who reached a career-high No. 20 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings in August 2006.

Acasuso will play his first tournament in nearly a year next week at the ATP Challenger Tour event in Bucaramanga, Colombia. The 28 year old has been sidelined with a left knee injury since contesting his last ATP World Tour tournament at the Movistar Open in February 2010.

Tournament Director, Martin Jaite, said, "We've seen Chucho's growth in our tournaments. First the Copa Ericsson and now the ATP World Tour event. He belongs to that great generation of tennis players that our country made in the past 10 years. I hope he will take advantage of this chance and that a good home performance will help him to get back among the best players.”

Acasuso will join Spaniards David Ferrer, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Nicolas Almagro and Tommy Robredo; Argentines David Nalbandian and Juan Monaco, and Stanislas Wawrinka, Potito Starace and Alexandr Dolgopolov in the main draw.

Tickets for the Copa Claro are available from or by calling +54 115 533 5533.
