Henry Wilfred ('Bunny') Austin

Sitter in 14 portraits
Fred Perry's contemporary and with him the mainstay of Britain's victorious Davis Cup team from 1933 to 1936. A consistent and stylish player, Austin was a great favourite with the crowds, failing to reach the Wimbledon quarter finals only once between 1929 and 1939.
