Actually Maria's draw for Wimbledon gave her Myskina, Sugiyama, Davenport and Venus. Myskina was replaced by Frazier, but I still wouldn't call that too weak a draw.
New haven will probably see a lot of withdrawals IMO, because of the Olympics, so may not be too bad.
The US Open with 32 seeds and rest days between matches will hopefully take the sting out of any ugly draws. However players under-ranked because of injury time-outs (Venus, Serena, Kim) could unbalance the draw.
Sabine Lisicki, Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva,
Victoria Azarenka, Dinara Safina, Maria Kirilenko
Nadia Petrova, Samantha Stosur, Ana Ivanovic.
