Beckham Jr. has been one of the best wide receivers in the National Football League since joining the Giants. His $95m deal also tops the $82.5m (£64m) deal receiver Mike Evans has with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers .

"I think I'm getting there", said Williams, who turned up the heat on a steamy NY night that opened with a gala celebration of the US Open's 50th anniversary.

She explained while at a press conference about the U.S. Open that the decision has to do with their religious beliefs.

She said: "I felt so feminine in the tutu, which is probably my favourite part of it". It's an experience you can only live in NY and it's one of the best feelings in the world.
