Juan Martin Del Potro has not gathered a great deal of consideration as a potential winner of Wimbledon this year, however the Argentinian should fancy his chances.

Virtually all Wimbledon betting markets have Del Potro in the 15/1 to 20/1 range, best odds being 22/1 from Stan James

So why does the Argentinian have such good odds? The major knock against Del Potro is that he has failed to make it past the second round at Wimbledon in his previous attempts in 2007 and in 2008.

However, this has been Del Potro's breakthrough year. In the past year this is what Del Potro has accomplished in Grand Slams:

2008 US Open - quarterfinalist

2009 Australian Open - semifinalist

2009 French Open - semifinalist

In short, his previous performance in slams from years past have no predictive value for how he is going to do this year as, in all three other slams besides Wimbledon, Del Potro showed marked improvement despite early round exits the year before.

While Del Potro can't be considered the favorite for Wimbledon 2009, he does look like a serious semifinalist especially with the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal. With significant returns on a winning bet he is well worth the risk as he seems far more of a contender than the 22/1 on offer from Stan James suggest.

In one or two years time, Del Potro could easily be number one in the world, don't feel ashamed to jump on the Del Potro betting bandwagon now.
