Stanislas Wawrinka looks an enormous price at 15/1 to secure a third Grand Slam by following up his French Open title with victory at Wimbledon.
The Swiss exited Queen’s at the hands of big-serving South African Kevin Anderson, but there is reason to suspect that he will come back stronger at SW19.
His career grass ledger may not make particularly encouraging reading, standing at 22/20, yet last season was his best yet on the surface.
Bounced from the West Kensington warm-up event by eventual winner Grigor Dimitrov in 2014, he won only two matches before arriving at Wimbledon.
Yet, once there he recorded his best finish at the All England Club to date, succumbing to Roger Federer in the quarter finals despite taking the first set.
Since then he has undergone the personal torment of divorce from his wife of six years, the TV presenter Ilham Vuilloud, a blow that had utterly sabotaged his form prior to his remarkable victory over Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros.
Proving to himself his ability to beat the Serb on the biggest of stages will stand Wawrinka in good stead at Wimbledon, before which he has acknowledged the need for long hours of practice on the green stuff.
It’s unlikely he will have to gird his loins for such a feat until at least the semi-finals at SW19 thanks to his win in Paris.
That achievement elevated his world ranking to number four, meaning he can expect to be seeded inside the top quartet, thus avoiding Djokovic, Andy Murray and Roger Federer until the penultimate hurdle at the earliest.
He has won two of his last three meetings with the Scot, while he obliterated his lauded countryman in straight sets on the way to winning Roland Garros.
