Buenos Aires:

Former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina says he has recovered from a hip injury and will play at the French Open.

The No. 27th-ranked player was forced to pull out of a third-round match against Rafael Nadal at this month's Madrid Open because of the injury.

Del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion, sent a message on his Twitter account on Tuesday saying his recovery was down to hard work. "See you in Paris," he tweeted.

Del Potro's best performance at the French Open was a semi finals appearance in 2009. After reaching a career-high No. 4 in the rankings, he missed much of the 2010 season with a wrist injury.
