Full name: Brian Ivan Cobham Norton
Nickname: Babe

Plays Right-handed
Bio He was the third child and the second son of Reginald Cobham Norton and Elizabeth Christina Zoutendyk.
Misc According to William Tilden: B. I. C. Norton, the South African champion, a youngster of twenty, is a phenomenal player of extreme brilliancy. He has everything in stroke equipment, drives, slices, volleys, and a fine service and overhead. Unfortunately Norton regards his tennis largely as a joke. His judgment is therefore faulty, and he is apt to loaf on the court. He tries the most impossible shots that sometimes go in; and in the main, his court generalship is none too good.
He is an irrepressible boy, and his merry smile and chatter make him a tremendous favourite with the gallery. He has a very strong personality that should carry him a long way. (Source: The Art of Lawn Tennis)
