"Last week I contacted Andy Murray and his management," said Richard Krajicek, the Rotterdam tournament director and 1996 Wimbledon champion.
"Because he didn't have a tournament planned between the Australian Open and [the Abierto Mexicano Telcel in] Acapulco, and came back from Australia free from physical issues, it seemed like a good idea to both of us if he came to Rotterdam.
"After consultation with his coach, Ivan Lendl, he agreed. Obviously, this is a great addition to our already very strong field."
Igor Sijsling and Thiemo de Bakker have also been awarded wild cards in the main draw.
David Ferrer will attempt to capture his third straight Copa Claro title in Buenos Aires.
Ferrer said, "I'm happy to confirm that I will play Copa Claro and I'm very glad to play again in front of Buenos Aires crowd."
