DOMINGUEZ LINO, Lourdes ESP v DULKO, Gisela ARG
CORNET, Alize FRA v RISKE, Alison USA
MORITA, Ayumi JPN v [2] ZVONAREVA, Vera RUS

P.S. Some of my qualifier choices (i.e. Karatantcheva) are questionable at best, so here is the mock qualifying draw I got them from; replace them with your own in your own mind if you'd like, or suggest any seemingly glaringly mistaken choices. I rushed through picking them.

Credit to Andreas and all others who helped to compile/modify the entry lists I used in creating this.

Re: Australian Open draw... well, not quite.

Well, Wozniacki would be in trouble with Safarova or Lisicki, Bartoli and Azarenka.

Otherwise, there would be some great potential match-ups in the 3R, 4R and QF rounds.
It's almost a perfect draw.

Kvitova vs Clijsters for an early scare.
Stosur-Clijsters (huge hype)
Sharapova-Zvonareva
Petkovic vs Venus
Henin vs Kanepi
Peer vs Kuznetsova
Kleybanova bs Pavlyuchenkova.
etc.

Kvitova VS Groth R1. Two in-form players in R1.

Re: Australian Open draw... well, not quite.

This would be heaven draw for Ana:

R1: Bye - Niculescu
R2: UE machine Lucic
R3: Li Na, Ana could very well win this in 2
R4: Cibulkova would be tough, but beatable
QF : Sharapova/Zvonareva/pennetta - all of them Ana could win
SF: Would lose to Kimberly in SF, just for a change... SF would be awesome!

Re: Australian Open draw... well, not quite.

Jankovic has a bye* to the 4th round, where she'll get double bageled by Baby Anci.

I can live with this.

At her current form I don´t think she would pass Mirza, but if she did, Cibulkova would be very tough...

That's the draw from hell for Kim: Kimiko(1R), Peng Shuai (2R), Kvitova (3R), Kleybanova(4R), Stosur(QF) ..but I love Justine's draw

Re: Australian Open draw... well, not quite.

THat'd be a nice draw! Marino vs Dokic would be a great match! would be better in QF but I'd love to see that on Centre Court!!

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
