But it's straight to Wimbledon on what's known as Manic Monday.
It's one of the busiest days of the competition with the last 16
men and women playing on the same day.
Great news for British women's number one Joanna Konta,
who is safety through to the quarter finals!
She beat Caroline Garcia from France in three sets.
And two times champion Andy Murray is playing Frenchman Benoit Paire
He's currently in the lead, after winning the tie-break
Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer all play later on.
Wimbledon is famous for a few things; tennis,
strawberries and cream and err, something else.
Grass, grasslands... More grass. There are 40 courts, 18 used in
matches, and 22 used in practice. Every day, a special team mows the
grass and repaint the lines on every court. You look after all the grass
- it's a pretty tough job. You have the world's best athletes running
around on it for about nine hours a day, so it takes a lot of
punishment. It is a lot for the court to take. Why is the roof
closing? We will keep Centre Court in the shade. We have had extremely
hot weather in the last few days, and the courts aren't used to it, so
it just a precaution to make sure the grass doesn't get too stressed
out. Nobody plays on this court other than the two weeks of the
championships. I love that, because it keeps it special and it is an
honour to play on Centre Court. What happens to the grass after Wimbledon
finishes? It is a tennis club, so they will play on the outer courts.
On centre court, we shave off every blade of grass and we regrow the
court. We do that on every court. What is your garden like Adam? Not
as good, but pretty good. Now I have top tips for my own garden, and a
deep respect for the Wimbledon grass.
Next, good news for a fan of US tennis player Jack Sock.
Last week 14-year-old Peter asked for Jack's towel
after a match at Wimbledon, but it was pinched
Loads of people, including Andy Murray's mum Judy,
But now Peter been given a replacement towel.
He's heading back to his old club - Everton -
But the record goalscorer has a confession for United fans.
I've kept it quiet, to be honest. For the last 13 years. I have been
wearing Everton pyjamas at home with my kids. I had to keep that a bit
quiet. We asked kids in Liverpool
at Wayne's old school! He used to play for them as a
teenager and then he went to Manchester United. I don't think
he's too old, he's just not as good as he used to be. I think it is good
he came to our school. He can really shine for us now.
It's somewhere you might have visited on holiday,
now the Lake District, in the north of England has been
It's the 31st place in the UK to be given this title, and joins
the likes of the Grand Canyon in the US, Taj Mahal in India
