The 98th-ranked Czech joins retiring Spaniard David Ferrer and NextGen Canadian star Felix Auger-Aliassime as the third men's wild card awarded by tournament director Feliciano Lopez.

"I just spoke to the director of the Mutua Madrid Open, Feliciano Lopez, and he just confirmed to me a wild card," Bedych said. "So I'm really glad to be coming back for this great event. I have very good memories for this tournament."

Berdych, who was sidelined for the final six months of 2018 battling a back injury, opened the 2019 season reaching the Doha final where he fell to Roberto Bautista Agut.

The 33-year-old Czech has posted a 12-6 record this season.

Berdych, who lost to Lopez in Indian Wells, was 2012 Madrid runner-up to Roger Federer.
