INDIAN WELLS, CALIF. (AP) - Former top-five player David Nalbandian of Argentina and veteran Americans Sam Querrey, Robby Ginepri and Jill Craybas are among those receiving wild cards into the main draws of the BNP Paribas Open to be played March 5-18 in Indian Wells.

Nalbandian was a 2002 Wimbledon finalist whose best finish at Indian Wells was reaching the quarterfinals in 2008.

Querrey reached a career-high ranking of No. 17 in the world at the beginning of 2011 before injuries sidelined him for much of the year.

On the men’s side, American teenagers Jack Sock and Denis Kudla were granted wild cards. On the women’s side, Americans Irina Falconi, Sloane Stephens, Jamie Hampton, Coco Vandeweghe, and Lauren Davis earned wild cards, as did Urszula Radwanska of Poland and Sania Mirza of India.
