Japan defence minister quits amid plunging support for PM
Inada's short term as defense minister tested her reputation as a hawkish figure in Japanese politics. The main opposition Democratic Party, however, has failed to capitalise on Abe's troubles.

The assaults allegedly took place between 2016 and 2017.

Appearing in court Thursday, Philippoussis was charged with 14 counts. The alleged crimes occurred over the previous year at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, in a vehicle, and at the coach's residence, the Telegraph reported citing a criminal complaint.

"[Nikolaos] Philippoussis works as a personal tennis coach ... and the alleged molestation victims took tennis lessons from him", Lieutenant Greg Rylaarsdam said. "The investigation is ongoing at this time", according to the press release by San Diego County Sheriff's Department. "He understands the serious nature of the charges", News Mail reported.

The younger Philippoussis is a retired sporting legend whose career highlights include a Wimbledon final and winning two David Cup titles with Australia, in 1991 and 2003. Nikolaos was his coach until 2006 amid controversies that the two reportedly had a fallout.
