According Miami Herald Hewitt received a WC http://airamerica.com/full_story/126726212

Lleyton Hewitt, coming off hip surgery, was granted a wild card for the Sony Ericsson Open on Key Biscayne from March 25-April 5. He has played the tournament nine times and reached the semifinals from 2000-02.
"I have always enjoyed playing in Miami, as it is an event with strong draws and a great atmosphere and spectators," Hewitt said. "Hopefully, I can repeat some of my previous performances there and have a successful tournament.

http://tenniskalamazoo.blogspot.com/2009/03/bhambri-given-sony-ericsson-main-draw.htmlIndia's Yuki Bhambri, the world's top-ranked junior and the reigning Australian Open Junior champion has received a main draw wild card into the Sony Ericsson Open, which begins on March 25. That news, first reported by The Hindu, was confirmed by IMG Vice President Olivier Van Lindonk. The 16-year-old had earned a qualifying wild card by virtue of his victory at the Orange Bowl, on the site of the Sony Ericsson, but IMG, who owns the tournament, has decided to upgrade him. He'll join Marcos Baghdatis and Lleyton Hewitt, who have already been announced as wild card recipients.

no it's different (ATP rules // ITF rules) : the highest ranked if I don't make any mistake (seems to be Sela or Bellucci if they lose, Phau if they win)

looks like Nadal needs to win this and add this to his resume.

Can't believed Hewitt or Safin didn't win this.
