Hello, I'm Martin, and this is Newsround at Saturday lunchtime.

0:00:120:00:15

And we're all getting very excited about the tennis on the final

0:00:150:00:19

weekend of Wimbledon!

0:00:190:00:20

Now in action on Court number three are Britain's Alfie Hewett

0:00:200:00:25

and Gordon Reid in the final of the men's wheelchair doubles.

0:00:250:00:27

They've made a strong start and are leading in the first set.

0:00:270:00:31

Staying with tennis

0:00:310:00:33

and the women's singles final is happening today

0:00:330:00:34

on Centre Court later.

0:00:340:00:35

Five-time winner Venus Williams will take on Spain's Garbine Muguruza.

0:00:350:00:41

And it's the men's singles final tomorrow.

0:00:410:00:43

Marin Cilic beat Sam Querry after an exciting match yesterday

0:00:430:00:45

and he'll face Roger Federer, who beat Tomas Berdych.

0:00:450:00:49

Federer is aiming for a record-breaking

0:00:490:00:53

eighth Wimbledon title.

0:00:530:00:57

I feel very privileged to be in another final.

0:00:570:00:59

I know how much it means to so many players to be able to go out

0:00:590:01:03

on Centre Court at Wimbledon at any given time in their career and I've

0:01:030:01:06

had the pleasure to play on Centre Court so many times

0:01:060:01:09

and this time, in another finals, it's so good.

0:01:090:01:11

I can't almost believe it's true again.

0:01:110:01:17

And you might not know who to cheer on in the mixed doubles tomorrow

0:01:170:01:20

because there's two British players in the mix!

0:01:200:01:22

Heather Watson and her partner Henri Kontinen are the defending

0:01:220:01:25

champions after winning last year, and they'll face fellow

0:01:250:01:29

Brit Jamie Murray and his partner Martina Hingis, in the final.

0:01:290:01:37

Next, from aces to races because Hannah Cockroft took T34

0:01:410:01:43

100m gold in world-record time as Britain won three medals

0:01:430:01:45

on the opening night of the World Para-athletics Championships

0:01:450:01:48

at London Stadium.

0:01:480:01:49

17.18 seconds was all it took for Hannah to cross the finishing

0:01:490:01:51

line, and the Paralympic triple medalist is loving the atmosphere.

0:01:510:01:59

Immense!

0:01:590:02:00

Amazing!

0:02:000:02:01

I think going around the warm-up laps, I was getting a bit emotional.

0:02:010:02:04

The noise is so loud.

0:02:040:02:05

We haven't had that since London 2012.

0:02:050:02:07

And just to be able to go in, put a good performance in,

0:02:070:02:10

it just means so much.

0:02:100:02:12

And hopefully, it's a sign of a good Championships to come.

0:02:120:02:16

Tackling a blaze isn't just a job for firefighters, fire dogs play

0:02:160:02:19

an important role, too!

0:02:190:02:22

This is Scrappy.

0:02:220:02:23

He helps the fire teams in the North East of England.

0:02:230:02:27

But he's now putting his paws up and retiring.

0:02:270:02:29

So, who will get his job, and what does it take to be

0:02:290:02:33

a brilliant fire dog?

0:02:330:02:41

Meet Scrappy, County Durham and Darlington Fire Service's

0:02:410:02:43

very special dog.

0:02:430:02:44

He puts his special fire-protection boots on and then he's off,

0:02:440:02:47

helping the firefighters.

0:02:470:02:49

In fact, he's so good at his job, he's been given a special award

0:02:490:02:54

by a nearby university!

0:02:540:02:59

He can detect evidence up to one metre deep and 21

0:02:590:03:03

days after the fire, which is really, really good!

0:03:030:03:05

He's brilliant as his job, but it's time for Scrappy to retire

0:03:050:03:10

and the team are looking for his replacement.

0:03:100:03:13

So, what makes a good firedog?

0:03:130:03:14

We like having cockers.

0:03:140:03:20

They're easy to train, lightweight, good with kids,

0:03:200:03:24

can go up ladders with me and can go up aerial mounts if we need

0:03:240:03:28

to get into high flats.

0:03:280:03:33

Well, the hunt is on, but it's not going to be easy

0:03:330:03:36

finding a dog that can fill Scrappy's very special fire boots!

0:03:360:03:42

It's monkey versus human now.

0:03:420:03:45

The cheeky wild monkeys on Gibraltar are having a bit of a row

0:03:450:03:48

with the people living there, Ayshah has more.

0:03:480:03:53

Look at these lot - hanging about, being cute, monkeying around.

0:03:550:03:58

Wait...

0:03:580:03:59

Did he just steal food?

0:03:590:04:00

The Barbary macaques are the only wild monkey left in Europe.

0:04:000:04:04

Tourists love them but the people who live here...

0:04:040:04:07

Not so much.

0:04:070:04:08

They know how to open your car door.

0:04:080:04:10

They know, when they wander down in town and you have left

0:04:100:04:12

the kitchen window open, they know what a refrigerator is.

0:04:120:04:15

They know how to pull the handle open and help themselves.

0:04:150:04:18

Refrigerators, eh?

0:04:180:04:19

I would be devo if they stole my chocolate.

0:04:190:04:21

These monkeys might be troublesome but they are also rare.

0:04:210:04:24

There are only 225 of them in Europe and...

0:04:240:04:28

They are the last free-ranging primates in the whole of Europe.

0:04:280:04:31

They are on the endangered species list and if we're not careful,

0:04:310:04:34

they will disappear off the face of the Earth.

0:04:340:04:38

So, to keep the peace, a charity has set up

0:04:380:04:40

special feeding stations, away from homes, where the monkeys

0:04:400:04:42

can get their grub.

0:04:420:04:46

Let's hope they can all live together in perfect harmony.

0:04:460:04:52

And take a look at this!

0:04:520:04:53

There's more to this field than meets the eye.

0:04:530:04:55

Ricky's on the case.

0:04:550:04:57

Can you solve the mystery of the maze made from, well, maize?

0:04:570:05:01

It is a curious case, but this field in Leicester has

0:05:010:05:03

a collection of mysterious pathways the size of four and a half football

0:05:030:05:07

pitches, and every year it has a new design in the shape

0:05:070:05:09

of something special.

0:05:090:05:15

It might look a bit CORN-fusing up close,

0:05:150:05:18

but like every good detective, you need to look at the big picture.

0:05:180:05:24

Follow the twists and turns of the case over the three miles

0:05:240:05:27

of pathways, and see if you can spot a pattern emerging.

0:05:270:05:33

Elementary!

0:05:330:05:34

It's Sherlock Holmes.

0:05:340:05:38

Over the summer, the plants will grow even taller,

0:05:380:05:40

so you can easily lose your way.

0:05:400:05:41

People will be able to take on the case and solve the mystery

0:05:410:05:44

themselves when it opens to visitors in a few weeks' time.

0:05:440:05:47

Amazing!

0:05:470:05:53

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
