Y en pos de ese objetivo, el tandilense pegó un giro de timón en su calendario: finalmente participará del Masters 1000 de Montecarlo, cita para la cual pidió una invitación que le fue concedida. El torneo comienza el 14 de abril."

Basically it said he's more focused on getting into the top 4, so he "pidió una invitación" (asked to be invited) and was given that invitation. So does this mean he'll actually go?

EDIT: found an article in English saying he actually accepted:
Tournament director Zeljko Franulovic confirmed Del Potro's acceptance earlier today, which in turn means that nine of the world's top 10 players will feature at the competition.

"We are very pleased to receive Juan Martin in the principality and [it] is a great treat for our audience. [He is] a great player with an impressive track record and great ambitions every year," Franulovic said in a statement."
