Anna, 68, looked chic as always in an abstract high-neck frock which she teamed with her trademark sunglasses and slick brunette bob.

Lynette coordinated with Anna in a similar abstract dress and appeared pleased that Roger had defeated Yoshihito Nishioka to progress to the next round.

It’s unknown how long Hugh and Deborra-lee plan on staying in New York, after spending the past two months in Sydney, Australia.

Earlier this month, The Daily Telegraph suggested that Hugh, who has always rented in Sydney’s east, has his eye on a property in Dover Heights after Deborra-lee was ‘sighted’ at a recent inspection.   

However a representative for Hugh has since told Daily Mail Australia: ‘The Jackmans are not purchasing a property in the area.’
