With Nishikori and Soeda already in, the organization will have plenty of wildcards to spend.

Re: Tokyo Qualifying Entry List (updated September 26, 2008)

Matsui is still in the qualifying draw, I am assuming that he will be taken out and has been given a main draw wildcard. Tatsuma Ito probably also has one.

Re: Monfils withdraws from Tokyo

Sure, players often withdraw because they don't like their possible 3rd round opponent.
^^

Monfils had shoulder problems again in Bangkok, it was reported in L'Equipe. They're afraid it's the same problem as in Nottingham & Wimbledon.

Re: Monfils withdraws from Tokyo

Thanks, I think it's minor, but it makes sense to get it checked up after having missed Wimbledon already because of a similar problem.

I agree it's not of general interest, I was just responding the comments he might be chickening out because JWT is in his part of the draw - the official reason ("right shoulder") seems perfectly genuine.
