London - (Curse of Henman Hill): With Federer slinking off with his tail between his legs and a raft of top seeds flopping in the heat Spanish tennis ace Rafael Nadal is sitting pretty at Wimbledon today.
The muscular, testosterone-pumping Spanish ace is looking every inch the grand slam champ.
Months of overblown Murraymania look like reaching their inevitable, karmic climax this afternoon and Rafa clearly isn't bothered.
Not for him either all that sycophantic fawning the other day when fellow top seeds bowed and scraped the bottom of the proverbial barrel during the Queen's tour of SW19.
The world No 1 seed was too busy honing his grand slam skills to notice the old Nazi Pretender's entirely gratuitous vanity visit.
The snub didn't exactly endear him to the Puppet Monarch whose sneaky behind the scenes gift of a lucky rabbit foot to the Scots-born No 4 seed sent him into fits of laughter.
"Rabbit foot?" the champ chortled.
"Murray will need a whole damned rabbit just to win one set against me!"
Bookies make the Spaniard 8/13fav for Sunday's finals.
