MADRID, Oct 12 (Reuters) Spaniard Feliciano Lopez has been voted in as a wild card entry for the Madrid Masters for the second successive year in a poll organised by Spanish sports daily Marca, organisers said.

The 26-year-old left-hander, ranked 43rd in the world, came in well ahead of Fabrice Santoro, Lee Hyung-taik and Ernests Gulbis in the poll.

Organisers have also handed wild cards to Spaniard Albert Montanes and Argentine youngster Juan Martin del Potro.

The Madrid Masters begins on Monday with last year's winner Roger Federer and world number two Rafael Nadal among the participants.
