Suellen Sheehan has started playing tennis again, four months after her abuser, Bob Hewitt, was found guilty on charges of rape and indecent assault.
Hewitt pleaded not guilty after three women claimed he abused them while he was their coach in the 1980s and 1990s.
During the trial Sheehan revealed she did not have a relationship with her family because her parents supported Hewitt.
She claimed her parents were abusive towards her when she was young, saying she didn’t report the abuse immediately because her parents dismissed her and told her she was talking rubbish when she tried to confide in them.
Sheehan spoke to Sam Cowen about her rekindled love for tennis.
