Former French Open semi-finalist Gael Monfils, who has struggled for form after a string of injuries marred his 2012 season, has been given a wild card for the grand slam claycourt event, organisers said on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old Frenchman, who reached the last four in 2008, has dropped down the rankings to 119 from a high of seven in 2011.
Compatriot Virginie Razzano, who stunned current World No 1 Serena Williams in the opening round last year, has also been handed an automatic entry.
The French Open takes place from May 26 to June 9.
