Hello I'm Martin, and this is Newsround.

We're all getting very excited about the tennis on the final

Now, just this moment the ladies final is starting on Centre Court

:00:17.:00:23.

with Garbine Muguruza taking on five-time champion

:00:24.:00:26.

Earlier today, Ayshah managed to get a sneak peak

:00:27.:00:29.

This isn't a chord. It is one of the most famous places in the world to

:00:30.:00:42.

play tennis. Some of the top tennis players are going to be here today.

:00:43.:00:49.

It is very, very exciting. 15,000 spectators will be roaring and is

:00:50.:00:54.

cheering and doing allsorts for the women's final today. And I have got

:00:55.:00:57.

one more thing I have got to show you. That through this huge and it

:00:58.:01:03.

can take up to ten minutes to close. But I've got a very special guest

:01:04.:01:08.

with me right now. And she is going to be doing a very important job.

:01:09.:01:12.

Tell me what you are doing. I'm going to toss the coin at the

:01:13.:01:17.

women's final to see who will serve first.

:01:18.:01:20.

What an important job. How you feeling? Very nervous. I

:01:21.:01:26.

don't want to mess it up. But excited, as I just need to take in

:01:27.:01:30.

the moment and enjoy it. I'm sure you will be absolutely

:01:31.:01:35.

fine. Have you ever been on Centre Court before?

:01:36.:01:37.

What is it like to be here? It is amazing to be here and I can't wait

:01:38.:01:43.

to walk on the hallowed turf and, yeah, once in a lifetime

:01:44.:01:44.

Lets stay in Wimbledon for a wee bit.

:01:45.:01:47.

Wheelchair doubles duo Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewett have

:01:48.:01:49.

had their doubles final match postponed due to rain

:01:50.:01:51.

so we'll have to wait to see who will win that one.

:01:52.:01:56.

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

:01:57.:01:57.

Marin Cillic beat Sam Querry after an exciting match yesterday

:01:58.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:02.

Federer is aiming for a record breaking eighth Wimbledon title.

:02:03.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:11.

because there's two British players in the mix!

:02:12.:02:15.

Heather Watson and her partner Henri Kontinen are the defending

:02:16.:02:17.

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

:02:18.:02:19.

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

:02:20.:02:26.

Next, from aces to races - Great Britian's Hannah Cockroft took

:02:27.:02:29.

T34 100m gold in world record time as Britain won three medals

:02:30.:02:34.

on the opening night of the World Para-athletics Championships

:02:35.:02:37.

17.18 seconds was all it took for the Hannah

:02:38.:02:46.

to cross the finishing line and the Paralympic triple medalist

:02:47.:02:48.

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

:02:49.:02:55.

We haven't had that since London 2012.

:02:56.:02:58.

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

:02:59.:03:01.

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

:03:02.:03:07.

Large predators like tigers, lions, cheetahs and wolves,

:03:08.:03:11.

have lost more than ninety percent of the areas

:03:12.:03:13.

Scientists say it's because people are moving into these areas

:03:14.:03:17.

They say it's important to protect the animals

:03:18.:03:21.

Tackling a blaze isn't just a job for firefighters -

:03:22.:03:29.

fire dogs play an important role too!

:03:30.:03:31.

This is Scrappy, he helps the fire teams in the North East of England.

:03:32.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:36.

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

:03:37.:03:39.

Meet Scrappy, County Durham and Darlington Fire Service's

:03:40.:03:42.

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

:03:43.:03:48.

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

:03:49.:03:55.

He can detect evidence up to one metre deep and 21

:03:56.:04:02.

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

:04:03.:04:08.

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

:04:09.:04:10.

and the team are looking for his replacement.

:04:11.:04:13.

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

:04:14.:04:24.

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

:04:25.:04:31.

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

:04:32.:04:40.

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

:04:41.:04:46.

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

:04:47.:04:50.

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

:04:51.:04:57.

It's a curious case, but this field in Leicester has

:04:58.:05:00.

a collection of mysterious pathways the size of four

:05:01.:05:02.

And every year it has a new design in the shape of something special.

:05:03.:05:12.

It might look a bit corn-fusing up close.

:05:13.:05:17.

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

:05:18.:05:20.

Follow the twists and turns of the case over the three

:05:21.:05:24.

And see if you can spot a pattern emerging...

:05:25.:05:32.

Over the summer the plants will grow even taller so you can easily

:05:33.:05:37.

lose your way...People will be able to take on the case and solve

:05:38.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:49.

That's all from me, Newsround's back at half past ten tomorrow morning.

:05:50.:06:00.
