Lets stay in Wimbledon for a wee bit.

so we'll have to wait to see who will win that one.
And it's the men's singles final tomorrow.
Marin Cillic beat Sam Querry after an exciting match yesterday
and he'll face Roger Federer who beat Tomas Berdych.
Federer is aiming for a record breaking eighth Wimbledon title.
And you might not know who to cheer on in the mixed doubles tomorrow
because there's two British players in the mix!

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

Next, from aces to races - Great Britian's Hannah Cockroft took
T34 100m gold in world record time as Britain won three medals
on the opening night of the World Para-athletics Championships
17.18 seconds was all it took for the Hannah
to cross the finishing line and the Paralympic triple medalist
I think going around the warm-up laps, I was getting a bit emotional.
We haven't had that since London 2012.
And just to be able to go in, put a good performance in,
And hopefully, it's a sign of a good Championships to come.
Large predators like tigers, lions, cheetahs and wolves,
have lost more than ninety percent of the areas
Scientists say it's because people are moving into these areas
They say it's important to protect the animals
Tackling a blaze isn't just a job for firefighters -
fire dogs play an important role too!
This is Scrappy, he helps the fire teams in the North East of England.
But he's now putting his paws up and retiring.
So who will get his job, and what does it take to be
Meet Scrappy, County Durham and Darlington Fire Service's
He puts his special fire-protection boots on and then he's off,
In fact, he's so good at his job, he's been given a special award
He can detect evidence up to one metre deep and 21
days after the fire, which is really, really good!
He's brilliant as his job, but it's time for Scrappy to retire
and the team are looking for his replacement.
They're easy to train, lightweight, good with kids,
can go up ladders with me and can go up aerial mounts if we need
Well, the hunt is on, but it's not going to be easy
finding a dog that can fill Scrappy's very special fire boots!
There's more to this field than meets the eye.
Can you solve the mystery of the maize made from, well, maize?
It's a curious case, but this field in Leicester has
a collection of mysterious pathways the size of four
And every year it has a new design in the shape of something special.
It might look a bit corn-fusing up close.
But like every good detective, you need to look at the big picture.
Follow the twists and turns of the case over the three
And see if you can spot a pattern emerging...
Over the summer the plants will grow even taller so you can easily
lose your way...People will be able to take on the case and solve
the mystery themselves when it opens to visitors in a few weeks time.
That's all from me, Newsround's back at half past ten tomorrow morning.
