Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships
Tokyo, Japan; Surface: hard

Seeds: Juan Martin Del Potro, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Milos Raonic, Kei Nishikori, Gilles Simon, Nicolas Almagro, Kevin Anderson, Janko Tipsarevic


Floaters: Marcos Baghdatis, Jurgen “Tuna” Melzer, Gael “Force” Monfils

Notes: Andy Murray pulled from the event (back surgery)…Some opening-round testers with (1) Del Potro vs. Baghdatis, (4) Nishikori vs. Tuna Melzer, and (2) Tsonga vs. Gael Force in an all-French affair…Simon and Almagro have losing career records at the event, while Anderson makes his debut…Wildcards went to Del Potro and Japan’s Tatsuma Ito, Go Soeda, and Yuichi Sugita…Nishikori beat Raonic in last year’s final…Returning champs in the field are Nishikori (2012) and Tsonga (2009).
