Both Kei Nishikori and Go Soeda received WC for main entry. I just saw Nishikori's name in the qualifying entry list and noticed that this has not been mentioned yet. Here's players list on official site.
It's in Japanese, but if you scroll down to the bottom, you see them listined as WC.

It's ironic that they don't have real English page there when the tournament is sponsored by Rakuten, ha! :o

I read this, there is a title of the article is, but in the article itself, I found no words from Drysdale that Hewitt is removed from the Tokyo and Shanghai

Is Tsonga defiantly playing?

He's apparently already in Tokyo, so I believe so.

Tsonga, Roddick, Del Potro, Monfils and Nishikori will appear in the opening event from 3 p.m. here on Sunday.
The tournament announced the lineup yesterday so I guess all of them will come.
