A South African judge convicted former grand slam tennis doubles champion Bob Hewitt, 75 of rape and sexual assault decades after the incidents.
Australian-born Hewitt was found guilty of raping two young girls he coached in the 1980s. He is also believed to have sexually assaulted a third girl in the 1990s.
"The state´s evidence against the accused is overwhelming," Judge Bert Bam said. During the trial, one of the women reportedly testified that Hewitt told her "rape is enjoyable" as he assaulted her. Hewitt had denied the charges.
