He will definitely get a WC.

The wildcards have not yet officially been announced.

Re: Tokyo Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated August 26, 2008)

Nishikori will get in as first alternate after one player withdraws -- he almost certainly won't need a wildcard.

That's true. In this way, the organisers will save all wildcards for four other players. Japanese players most likely.

Re: Tokyo Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated August 26, 2008)

Last year the four wildcards were Japanese too. However, Ferrer had not signed up and was a very late addition to the field because of some obscure ATP rule that allows a late replacement if a top player withdraws at the last minute (I think it was Federer). Ferrer went on to win the tournament.

Viktor I almost missed his name because it was so much higher up than I'm used to Ajde!

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer
