Paris - Rafael Nadal is expected to make his return from a knee injury at the Monte Carlo Masters, after being included in the official list of players on Thursday.

Tournament organisers announced the line-up for the clay-court tournament in Paris.

Nadal has won it a record 11 times and held a 46-match winning streak at Monte Carlo from 2005-13 - the most consecutive wins at a tournament by any man or woman.

Last Saturday, the second-ranked Nadal withdrew from his semi-final at Indian Wells against longtime rival Roger Federer after feeling pain in his troublesome right knee during the quarterf-inal against Karen Khachanov.

Nadal skipped the hard-court Miami Open, which began this week, to prepare for his season on clay.

The 32-year-old Spaniard is aiming for a record-extending 12th French Open title at Roland Garros, and an 18th major, from May 26-June 9.
