Former Grand Slam doubles champion Bob Hewitt has been served a summons to appear in a South African court following allegations he sexually abused young girls he coached decades ago, prosecutors told The Associated Press on Thursday.

South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority said the summons was served on the 73-year-old Hewitt last Saturday. Hewitt was ordered to appear at Boksburg Magistrate's Court near Johannesburg on Aug. 16, when the court will likely make public what criminal charges he faces.
