Steve Walker, a spokesman for the San Diego County district attorney, said any criminal charges would be filed at Philippoussis' arraignment, which must be held by Friday.

USA police have charged the father of retired Australian tennis player Mark Philippoussis with molesting two children he was coaching, and want to hear from any other alleged victims.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, 68-year-old Nikolaos Philippoussis was taken into custody from his Mira Mesa home this morning.

Rylaarsdam said the investigation began after someone reported the allegations to the sheriff department's North Coastal station in Encinitas.

He spent Tuesday night behind bars at San Diego's Central Jail.

In recent days he was listed as a substitute with the local professional tennis club, the San Diego Aviators.

Mark reached a career-high ranking of world no.8, won two Davis Cups and reached the finals of the US Open and Wimbledon.

Last year, Mark posted an Instagram message on Father's Day, stating: "Happy Fathers Day dad and to all the dads, thank you for your love, support and always being at my side through the good and the bad".

At the time, he worked as a personal tennis coach for the alleged victims, sheriff's officials said.

More as we get it.

Bail for Nick has been set at US$2.5 million (AU$3.15 million) and the investigation is ongoing.

A neighbour of Mr Philippoussis, Cynthia Buenaventura, said Nick lived with a younger woman, aged in her 50s.
