Basel, Switzerland:

World number three Andy Murray will take a wild card entry into next week's ATP Swiss Indoors where he joins world number one Novak Djokovic and home hero Roger Federer, Swiss media reported on Thursday.

The Scot is on a hot streak of form having won three titles in a row this month in Asia -- Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai.

Other top 10 additions to begin play on Monday at the St Jakobshalle include number seven Czech Tomas Berdych and eighth-ranked American Mardy Fish.

Murray passed Federer for third in the world after winning the Shanghai Masters.

Djokovic arrived in Basel on Wednesday and was hitting with Federer at a local sports club 24 hours later.

The Serb world number one has not competed since a back injury flared during the Davis Cup semi-final against Argentina in September.

Federer will be making his first start since leading Switzerland past Australia and into the Davis Cup World Group in Sydney.
