Slam winners in each half of the draw

I was looking at the draw for RG 2010 when I realised Federer is the only slam winner in his half. Had a look back, I think it happened before with Rafa's half in the US Open 2008. It's possible I've embarassingly missed someone out, but how often has this occurred? It's got to be pretty rare. Were there any occasions when all the slam winners fell on one side of the draw?

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Interesting

I also found Wimbledon 2000 in the upper half, only Sampras was a former GS champion.
So the French Open will be the 3rd time since in this millenium this occurs.

There are 5 GS champions in the bottom half of the French Open 2010 draw, and only Federer in the upper one.
