Johannesburg - Rape accused former tennis doubles champion Bob Hewitt is expected to appear in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Hewitt, 73, faces two charges of rape. One of the alleged rapes took place in Boksburg in 1982, and the other at Sun City in 1981.
Both of his alleged victims were 16 at the time. He also faces a charge of indecent assault.

Hewitt, who is based in Port Elizabeth, was not in court for a previous hearing on October 4 because he was ill, his lawyer Alwyn Griebenow told the court.

Magistrate Emmanuel Magampa said a warrant of arrest would be withheld until Hewitt's next appearance.

The case was postponed after the State said it had filed an application to have all three charges heard in one court.
