Afternoon all - Ricky here with your daily dose of Newsround.

:00:00.:00:09.

And O to the A to the P - the granny that raps

:00:10.:00:25.

But it's straight to Wimbledon on what's known as Manic Monday.

:00:26.:00:27.

It's one of the busiest days of the competition with the last 16

:00:28.:00:31.

men and women playing on the same day.

:00:32.:00:32.

Great news for British women's number one Joanna Konta,

:00:33.:00:41.

who is safety through to the quarter finals!

:00:42.:00:44.

She beat Caroline Garcia from France in three sets.

:00:45.:00:53.

And two times champion Andy Murray is playing Frenchman Benoit Paire

:00:54.:00:55.

He's currently in the lead, after winning the tie-break

:00:56.:00:59.

Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer all play later on.

:01:00.:01:02.

Wimbledon is famous for a few things; tennis,

:01:03.:01:04.

strawberries and cream and err, something else.

:01:05.:01:06.

Grass, grasslands... More grass. There are 40 courts, 18 used in

:01:07.:01:23.

matches, and 22 used in practice. Every day, a special team mows the

:01:24.:01:29.

grass and repaint the lines on every court. You look after all the grass

:01:30.:01:35.

- it's a pretty tough job. You have the world's best athletes running

:01:36.:01:39.

around on it for about nine hours a day, so it takes a lot of

:01:40.:01:43.

punishment. It is a lot for the court to take. Why is the roof

:01:44.:01:50.

closing? We will keep Centre Court in the shade. We have had extremely

:01:51.:01:54.

hot weather in the last few days, and the courts aren't used to it, so

:01:55.:01:59.

it just a precaution to make sure the grass doesn't get too stressed

:02:00.:02:03.

out. Nobody plays on this court other than the two weeks of the

:02:04.:02:08.

championships. I love that, because it keeps it special and it is an

:02:09.:02:13.

honour to play on Centre Court. What happens to the grass after Wimbledon

:02:14.:02:19.

finishes? It is a tennis club, so they will play on the outer courts.

:02:20.:02:26.

On centre court, we shave off every blade of grass and we regrow the

:02:27.:02:31.

court. We do that on every court. What is your garden like Adam? Not

:02:32.:02:40.

as good, but pretty good. Now I have top tips for my own garden, and a

:02:41.:02:43.

deep respect for the Wimbledon grass.

:02:44.:02:45.

Next, good news for a fan of US tennis player Jack Sock.

:02:46.:02:48.

Last week 14-year-old Peter asked for Jack's towel

:02:49.:02:50.

after a match at Wimbledon, but it was pinched

:02:51.:02:52.

Loads of people, including Andy Murray's mum Judy,

:02:53.:02:56.

But now Peter been given a replacement towel.

:02:57.:03:03.

He's heading back to his old club - Everton -

:03:04.:03:14.

But the record goalscorer has a confession for United fans.

:03:15.:03:18.

I've kept it quiet, to be honest. For the last 13 years. I have been

:03:19.:03:25.

wearing Everton pyjamas at home with my kids. I had to keep that a bit

:03:26.:03:29.

quiet. We asked kids in Liverpool

:03:30.:03:29.

at Wayne's old school! He used to play for them as a

:03:30.:03:44.

teenager and then he went to Manchester United. I don't think

:03:45.:03:54.

he's too old, he's just not as good as he used to be. I think it is good

:03:55.:04:10.

he came to our school. He can really shine for us now.

:04:11.:04:17.

It's somewhere you might have visited on holiday,

:04:18.:04:18.

now the Lake District, in the north of England has been

:04:19.:04:21.

It's the 31st place in the UK to be given this title, and joins

:04:22.:04:26.

the likes of the Grand Canyon in the US, Taj Mahal in India

:04:27.:04:29.

and the Great Wall of China, in getting one of the highest

:04:30.:04:32.

But what does it take for a place to get this very special title?

:04:33.:04:36.

Head to Newsround online for our guide.

:04:37.:04:39.

Next, to the rapping granny who's gone viral!

:04:40.:04:41.

Maryam raps with her grandson about what its like to be

:04:42.:04:44.

old and what she spends her pension on.

:04:45.:04:46.

She lives in Kazakhstan but the video has been getting

:04:47.:04:48.

Newsround's back tomorrow morning at 7.40 with Jenny.

:04:49.:05:03.
