MEXICO CITY (AP) Nursing an aching right shoulder injury, Novak Djokovic planned to return to tennis at Indian Wells in the California desert. But the Serbian star changed his mind and accepted a wild card to play in the Acapulco tournament that starts Monday.

Djokovic, who earlier this month required treatment in the shoulder after a four-set Davis Cup win over Russia's Daniil Medvedev, joins a loaded field of six top-10 players, tournament director Raul Zurutuza announced Thursday.

The 29-year-old Serbian Djokovic declined to play in Dubai, where he has played every year since 2007.
